What Happened To The Herd on FS1? The Herd is not on TV today because the host Colin Cowherd is on leave for a vacation in Europe.

The sports talk show run for three hours on FS1 and Fox Sports Radio Program. It was first aired on KFXX AM in 2001.

The radio show made its way to ESPN Radio in 2004. It was renamed 'The Herd With Colin Cowherd.'

The program opens discussions on sports news stories where the host gives his opinion regarding the subject matter. It welcomes celebrities and sports analysts for interviews. Greg Cosell, Peter King, Jay Glazer, Mike Joy, Champ Bailey, Peter Schrager, and Daniel Cormier are some regular guests on the talk show.

Over the years, Colin has been part of many controversies. His insensitive remark during the death of Eddie Guerrero back in 2005 and Sean Taylor's murder in 2007 created headlines and presented him with a negative image.

However, the show's opinionated format makes it appealing to the fans. Any controversy can bring publicity and more people are attracted to that product.

Why Is The Herd Not On Tv Today?

The Herd is taking a break from its airing time of 12 p.m. on Fox. The absence of Colin Cowherd has led the show to take a hiatus for some time.

Before becoming a part of the FOX network, it used to air on ESPN. The program moved from ESPN in 2015 due to his negative remark on the intelligence level of players from the Dominican Republic to assess baseball.

It sparked fury from the audience, and Colin's show was pulled out from ESPN.

Since 2015, the Premier Network has taken the show under its wing.
