Sofia Franklyn’s Introduction
Sofia Franklyn is an influential American Tik-Tok star and podcaster known for her role as the co-host of the hit podcast “Call her Daddy.” The fiery first episode of her new podcast, “Sofia With An F,” is her side of the breakup between her, Barstool Sports, and former co-host Alexandra Cooper. The tone of that first episode and the anticipation of what is coming next stand to bring in a considerable amount of money for Sofia.
Early Life of Sofia Franklyn
Sofia Franklyn was born in July 1992 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She graduated from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s in economics and went to work at a finance firm.
Because she is concerned with privacy, details of her personal life are scarce.
Sofia Franklyn’s Career
After working at the finance firm for a while, Sofia started to take an interest in stories about sexual encounters. It was then that her hit podcast “Call Her Daddy” was born. Sofia wrote about her own experiences, captivating the public. Her humorous and engaging approach to raunchy subjects has entertained millions.
Soon after creating the podcast, it caught the eye of Barstool Sports, a digital media company based in New York City. Sofia began working for Barstool Sports in 2018 and released many podcast episodes with her co-host, Alex Cooper.
Why “Call Her Daddy” Came To An End
Best known for her controversies, Sofia’s work online speaks for itself. “Call Her Daddy” became a smash, reaching #1 on iTunes on July 20, 2020. At the time, Sofia was making the same money as her co-host Alexandra Cooper before their public feud brought the friendship to an end. They were both making $70,000 each, with merchandising benefits. Despite renegotiating their deal with Barstool Sports, the duo decided to go their separate ways.
Barstool Sports offered Sofia and Alexandra a better deal, increasing their earnings and shorting the contract duration. Sofia made a counteroffer, comparing her worth to the pop-star Ke$ha.
Barstool declined Sofia’s counteroffer, and shortly after, Sofia’s tell-all hit the airwaves garnering much attention.
Hence, “Sofia with an F” was born, and #CancelSuitman started to litter the descriptions of her old podcast where her credits should’ve been. Allegedly, Sofia turned down a 6-figure salary with incentives and even a chance at regaining rights to Call Her Daddy at a later date.
“Suit Man” Controversy
Sofia’s boyfriend and long-time supporter, Peter “Suit Man” Nelson, is a former HBO executive who became involved in the negotiations between Franklyn and Barstool. As a result of his interference, he ended up stepping down from HBO Sports

New Podcast: “Sofia With An F”
After leaving “Call her Daddy,” things weren’t easy for Sofia, with waves of disapproving fans tanking her podcast ratings before it even started. Still, her podcast enjoys rising popularity on the charts. Her rude removal from her previous project was what people were begging to know.
“Sofia with an F” was a cathartic answer to what the fans wanted to know, and it was interesting enough to garner a huge amount of buzz despite Sofia’s negative press. It featured the same themes her old project would feature, only now she felt empowered and could spill anything she’d like without being censored.
The tell-all first episode gave people insight into the dynamic the co-hosts used to share on “Call her Daddy.” Sofia made it clear that she was the single driving force behind the duo’s success. She emphasized that Alexandra was riding her coattails to success. Sofia’s claims about her qualifications were not well received after new details emerged about the facts.
Her remarks resulted in some loss of sponsorship, but her show’s consistent audience keeps it afloat. It hit #1 on the iTunes US Podcasts Chart on October 8, 2020.
Sofia has recently faced some backlash for her insensitive comments about a long-forgotten friend who also happens to be a former Disney star. The alleged victim of this cyber harassment reached out to Sofia over how outrageous the incident was.
The social backlash was unrelenting, with Sofia facing all kinds of hate for her rude and obscene comments. The sponsors behind her new podcast were rather disinterested in her namedropping, eventually dropping their sponsorship.
Sofia publicly apologized on social media for her outburst and asked the victim for forgiveness.
Her online content still draws a large audience, mostly owing to her prior skills as a radio host. Her Tik-Tok content is very popular with younger audiences.
