Clay Travis is a FOX Sports Radio’s weekday morning-drive host. The multimedia sports personality joined the network in September 2016 to launch Outkick The Coverage with Clay Travis.

Broadcasting Monday through Friday from 6 to 9 a.m. ET on more than 300 stations nationwide, Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis is also available iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s industry-leading digital radio platform.
In 2019, Travis launched a new iHeartRadio Original Podcast, Wins & Losses with Clay Travis, on the iHeartPodcast Network. The show features candid, in-depth conversations with the biggest names in sports, entertainment, business and beyond, who discuss their inspiring journeys to success, including their wins and losses along the way.
The founder of the wildly popular OutKickTheCoverage.com also hosts the top-ranking Outkick The Show webcast, which is streamed live on Facebook and Periscope, and then turned into an audio-only podcast. Millions of fans consistently watch/listen to Outkick the Show, making it the largest and longest-running daily sports show streamed live on Facebook and Periscope.
Travis joined FS1 in 2018 as host of the network’s first-ever sports gambling show Lock It In with co-hosts Rachel Bonnetta, “Cousin Sal” Iacono, and Todd Fuhrman. The program aims to make the avid sports fan more informed about the world of sports betting with an eclectic cast of entertaining, sports-obsessed minds that want to make watching that night’s games as entertaining as possible.
In July of 2007, Travis published his first book Dixieland Delight, a critically-acclaimed chronicle of his 2006 tour of all 12 Southeastern Conference football stadiums and his entertaining fan experiences at every stop. The Nashville native and former lawyer previously wrote columns for CBSSports.com for four years before joining Deadspin as an editor in 2008.
During fall of that year, he began his second book, On Rocky Top: A Front-Row Seat to the End of an Era, an all-access tell-all documenting the University of Tennessee football program over the course of its season. His third book, Republicans Buy Sneakers, Too: How the Left is Ruining Sports with Politics, was released by Harper Collins in September 2018.
After spending 2009-2011 as a columnist for AOL FanHouse, Travis launched Outkick The Coverage, then an SEC-centric news and opinion blog, in July 2011. Gaining strong traction through the world of social media, Outkick became an internet phenomenon, attracting an average of two million unique visitors each month. He also co-hosted the top-rated 3HL on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville for five years.
A graduate of George Washington University as well as Vanderbilt Law School, Travis is married with three children, and lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
