- Drinks with Binks, Wednesdays at 8PM & 8:30PM ET/PT
Julie Stewart-Binks is the host of two shows on fubo Sports Network. Both shows launched September 2019 and embody the network’s spirit and vision.
”Call It a Night with Julie-Stewart Binks” features a comedy-driven, late show format but is fully dedicated to sports. Headlines to highlights, cold opens to the hottest topics, and of course plenty of high-profile guests, “Call It a Night” has it all. New episodes air Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7PM ET/PT.
“Drinks With Binks” has a lighter, casual vibe that encourages deeper conversations. Guests open bottles (alcoholic or otherwise) and open up about life, sports, motivations, fears, anything. New episodes air Fridays at 8PM ET/PT.
From sideline reporter to late-night host
JSB, as she’s known around the studio, has a sports/journalism/entertainment resume as deep and the ‘67 Maple Leafs roster. An avid hockey fan and player, she jumped into her career with both blades. She was a reporter on FOX Soccer’s “FOX Soccer Report” in Winnipeg; a program assistant at CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada”; and as a sports anchor and reporter at CTV in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Her dedication and persistence led to a move from the land of extreme weather warnings to sunny Los Angeles, where she helped launch FS1 as one of its original anchors and reporters. As FOX Sports grew, she hosted the 2014 Sochi Olympics and reported on the 2015 Women’s World Cup.
In 2015, Julie became FOX's regular sideline reporter for their newly acquired MLS matches, before moving to ESPN as a sideline reporter for MLS, the U.S. men’s and women’s national soccer teams and college football.
In fact, Julie is the first female reporter to call two straight MLS Cups with two different networks (FOX and ESPN).
In 2017, Julie joined Barstool Sports as the host of “Barstool Breakfast” on Sirius XM, before ultimately leaving to forge her improv and comedy skills. And it’s a good thing she did. Because 2019 was the year of the Binks.
After completing Upright Citizen Brigade’s program, writing jokes and refining her performance skills at Caroline’s and other New York City comedy clubs, Julie leveled up in a major way. She started hosting three different shows: “The Thread,” a daily TV show on SNY; at CBS Sports HQ; and an NHL podcast on The Athletic, all before landing what she’d later describe as her “dream job.”
What came next was two shows of her very own — writing, producing and shooting three new episodes a week — on fubo Sports Network. And it’s the perfect culmination of her abilities: her casualness and charm disarms her guests, her passions for sports and improv make her a master conversationalist and her standup training lets her deliver zingers with impact.
