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 of 2011. Gaining strong traction through social media, OutKick.com 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.

In 2021, Travis partnered with Buck Sexton to host “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show,” taking over the timeslot held by “The Rush Limbaugh Show” for more than three decades.
