Stephen A. Smith has announced that he will be releasing a memoir about his life which is set to come out next year.
The book titled, “Straight Shooter: A Memoir of Second Chances and First Takes” will be published under publisher 13A, an imprint of Gallery Books. The book will cover the sports broadcaster’s life from growing up in New York City, to his early stages as a journalist, to where he is in his career now.
In a recent statement, Smith said, “This book is a long time coming. Due to my fixation on privacy pertaining to my personal life, it took a lot of time, and a lot of prodding by loved ones, to finally get me to do this.”
He added, “But as I once told my Mom, ‘if I’m going to write a book, I’ll be dammed if I’m holding back. I’m going to speak my truth, say what I have to say, just so everyone knows where I stand and why.’ I know I’ve done that in this book. I had to do so eventually. It was time. No matter the consequences.”
Stephen A. Smith is currently a commentator on ESPN’s “First Take” as well as a basketball analyst on “SportsCenter”.
The book will be released in January 2023. Will you be getting a copy?
