Exavier Pope put his sports law and business radio show #SuitUP on hiatus to sell it to bigger platform, but before doing so, a former guest of his show Senior Writer for ESPN.com and ESPN the Magazine Steve Fainaru shared he also thought Exavier Pope deserved a bigger platform:
“I have to say, I’ve been on literally dozens of shows since our book came out, and I have not come across one that asked questions with as much insight, style and good humor as you. I really mean that. Please keep inviting me back…And what’s your audience? Whatever it is it’s not big enough.”

Exavier Pope happily admits he enjoys the attention.
“It is flattering to know not only do fans support my brand, but professionals within the industry as well,” says the rising star discussing the recent buzz. “I’d welcome a call from ESPN, but I would be most open to a call from any network where I would be able to display my first rate brand of analysis, my passion, and my trademarked style, as well working with awesome, forward looking people who allowed my creativity and voice to flourish. That could be ESPN, Fox, NBC, CBS, or Turner. I’ve been in talks for quite some time, and it is all about the right fit. The right situation where God puts me in order to have the right impact in media, that is where I will go.”
With help from #CallforPope campaign spreading, it looks as if The Best Dressed Man on TV could get a call for a tailor made fit soon.
