After graduating from Syracuse, Wright began his sports broadcasting career as production assistant and weekend host for the KCSP 610 AM radio station,based in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri.He then began hosting What’s Wright with Nick Wright?, his own weekly program on the station.
The Pitch, a local Kansas City newspaper, called Wright “610 Sports’ most polarizing and likely most popular host,” and also named him the best sports personality in 2010.Following his time in Kansas City, Wright co-hosted In the Loop with Nick and Lopez on KILT 610 AM, a Houston-based radio station.
Wright parlayed his experience in sports radio into a broadcast television career as he began working with Fox Sports in 2016.His early work at Fox involved regularly contributing to FS1’s daily studio shows. He often appeared as a guest host of The Herd.In late December 2016, Wright and former wide receiver Cris Carter co-hosted an episode of The Herd, while its regular host Colin Cowherd was out for vacation.
Then-Fox Sports executive Jamie Horowitz used Carter and Wright’s co-hosting venture to test their chemistry together, in order to assess the potential of them co-hosting a daily morning sports talk show on FS1.At the time, the early morning block was “a black hole for FS1”, according to Sporting News, as the network used that slot for game replays and reruns of other shows.
Nick Wright’s sports commentary has received both praise and criticism from media outlets. Complex’s Aaron Mansfield wrote, “First Things First is actually enjoyable, reasonable sports talk, and Wright is a big reason for that,” and opined that “knows how to build a convincing argument behind statistics.”
Mansfield added: “The Syracuse grad has differentiated himself in sports media because of his persuasive nature, his defend-LeBron-to-the-death mentality, and his willingness to confront prevalent social issues such as race in America.”In June 2019, Wright received media attention for making an inaccurate claim during an episode of First Things First about the awarding of the 2015 NBA Finals MVP Award to Andre Iguodala.
After multiple Finals MVP voters and an NBA representative debunked Wright’s version of events, Wright apologized. Starting in late 2020, Wright’s negative commentary on Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen received derision as Allen’s Bills continued to blow out teams and advance in the playoffs.
