Jason Whitlock, Katie Nolan Exchanging Pleasantries On Twitter

It would seem ESPN’s Katie Nolan is not pleased with Outkick partner and columnist Jason Whitlock.

As part of his column about ESPN’s Maria Taylor Sunday morning on — which you really should read, by the way — Jason dropped the following lines about Ms. Nolan, who hosts a program called “Always Late With Katie Nolan” on ESPN2:

“Beauty, most especially in television, has a privilege that trumps virtually all other privileges,” Whitlock wrote. “Beauty intoxicates TV executives, bloggers and journalists, and it masks a lack of accomplishment, qualifications and skill. Beauty transformed Katie Nolan from bartender to seven-figure personality, Emmy Award-winner and the darling of aroused bloggers and TV critics willing to ignore her pedestrian humor and inability to execute live television.”

Ms. Nolan and her supporters on Twitter were quick to respond:




. . . and on and on in a similar vein. Of course, Jason pulled a reply straight from the Cobra Kai School of Debate when he inquired:

…. which attracted many responses in the affirmative, with a minority pleading for him to walk away.

So what will Big Sexy do? Will he walk? Will he finish it? Stay tuned.

  1. Who is Katie Nolan? Exactly.

    I could ask the same question about almost all the Chica’s in sports media.

    Michelle Tafoya was great on MNF, but she is not a Babe, so maybe she is gone?

    Aron Andrews is only on TV, because … well … I don’t know. She’s not so hot anymore.

    I could go on, but criticizing women doesn’t get you to an answer. It never does.

    Girls are pushed to take men’s jobs. Not sure what jobs men are suppose to take from women.

  2. Don’t know who she is but hows this go F yourself and those twitter dudes too another reason i don’t have or want ESPN Jason is right and they know it that’s why they are all triggered.

  3. Okay, first off I’m obviously a fan of Jason’s and “Outkick” in general. I’m not replying to join the debate. I happen to find Katie Nolan very attractive, funny and someone with a decent amount of Sports Knowledge. I take her at face value. She is engaging and funny but I have never taken any of her “sports takes” serious! To me she is just a pleasant diversion form the overly serious “Sports Media” in general. She would probably “hate” my take and you may too but I really like her.

  4. I tried Nolan when she was doing her late night show on Fox sports. She has really bad timing or delivery, something always seems fall flat. Her facial expressions are her best comedic assets. And she is attractive, but not anything special. “Cute” would best describe her

  5. Have no idea who this woman is. However, will tune in all day to watch Doris Burke. Knowledgeable, insightful questions, takes no BS. True reporter and analyst. Same with Michelle Tafoya. From MSP and saw/watched her before she hit the big time. Smart and very good REPORTERS!

  6. So I see we have the usual attack from Women and their SIMPs — attack the MESSENGER because they KNOW his message is unassailable. The typical attack involves ridiculing Jason Whitlock’s weight. But, hey, Doris Burke ain’t exactly slim and trim, yet she has been doing sports analysis for YEARS. And why? It is because, like Jason Whitlock, her skills are why she has her job. The reason so many ESPN female show hosts are young and cute is because people LIKE to look at cute young things — but NO ONE should mistake that to mean that cute young things actually have any real SPORTS ANALYSIS skills. Michelle Beetle actually was halfway cute AND had skills. But, as Jason pointed out, she let her FEMINIST political biases negatively affect her job. All Jason is saying is that ESPN hosts who got their jobs because they are cute young things need to recognize that their looks will NOT help them KEEP their job if they get all political and WOKE on air.
