Jemele Hill was recently named the 2018 Journalist of the Year by the National Association of Black Journalists, and Fox & Friends tried to come for her. Surprise, surprise.
I won’t lie—It didn’t sit well with me when ESPN sports personality Jemele Hill issued a statement saying she “deserved that suspension” following the social media backlash over her controversial tweets about President Donald Trump and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. I absolutely get that jobs are scarce and nice…
Guess it’s Jamie Foxx’s policy not to talk about his longtime lady friend.
Jemele Hill is switching gears in her career, leaving her position as anchor on ESPN’s SportsCenter to join the staff of The Undefeated, an ESPN-owned website that focuses on the intersection of sports, race and culture, as well as take on additional assignments.
Our favorite sportscasters have done it for the culture.
Even if you aren’t the biggest sports fan, you may have heard of Michael Smith and Jemele Hill. His & Hers, which began as a podcast conceived and hosted by Smith and Hill, proved so popular that in 2014 it replaced the ESPN2 show Numbers Never Lie, which Smith began co-hosting with Charissa Thompson in 2011.
