Former ESPN Star Bill Simmons Says New Podcast to Launch October 1

"New name, new sponsors," he tweeted.

Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

It won’t be called the “B.S. Report” anymore, but Bill Simmons’s podcast is coming back October 1.

Simmons, the sports blogger-turned-commentator who recently landed at HBO after an unceremonious exit from ESPN, announced the news on Twitter on Monday morning.

Details about Simmons’s other ventures with HBO are still few and far between. The cable network said in July that Simmons would begin hosting a talk show in 2016 and that it would work with him on other stuff, including the aforementioned podcast and documentaries, too. But there was no mention at the time of Simmons working on a reboot of Grantland, the sports and pop culture site he created for ESPN.
