On September 14, 2011; Smith announced that he is leaving ESPN Radio. Rumors suggested he was leaving to take a job as a reporter on the MLB Network, which Smith refuted with the help of dramatic soundbites. His producer, Ali Bronson, also dispelled rumors about her taking over the show, or the show hiring former Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre. On his last show, taking place on September 16, 2011 he announced that he would move to the NFL Network, and would start the following Sunday. Smith has since returned to radio, hosting a weeknight show for rival Fox Sports Radio.
Mike Salk and Amy Lawrence were two frequent guest hosts for AllNight. Smith himself was a guest host on The Herd with Colin Cowherd, The Scott Van Pelt Show, Jim Rome is Burning, and The Doug Gottlieb Show.
