Jemele Hill Expected to Part Ways With ESPN

Jemele Hill Expected to Part Ways With ESPN”

According to reports, the host's separation from ESPN is "amicable".

The alleged departure was reported via Twitter by James Andrew Miller, podcaster/journalist.

Her departure comes after Pitaro has emphasized ESPN's role as an apolitical chronicler of the sports world.

Outspoken sports journalist Jemele Hill is breaking up with sports network ESPN after a series of incidents in which she bumped heads with network brass about issues of racism.

According to the New York Post, ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro hoped to move the network away from politics to maintain a focus on sports as to not isolate anyone from the audience.

ESPN suspended Hill for two weeks in October 2017, after her series of tweets calling for an advertiser boycott of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

The fall from grace by Hill was triggered by the twin problems of low ratings and controversy over Hill's political views, which she aired via Twitter.

"So much of my career at ESPN - nearly exclusively at some points - has been in commentary", she told Variety."They hired me as a columnist".

"Now watch all the MAGA people spread HEAVY Hellman's Hate Speech all through my comments but I don't give a shit because I'm laying here on the couch watching Bubbleguppies with my daughters and I'm not going back and forth with you Mayonnaise flavored niggas.have a blessed day."
They hired me as a columnist. "I know that whenever I kick off the next iteration of my career, it will involve me getting more deeply involved in producing original content", she said.

The Athletic's Richard Deitsch reports that Hill will work with friend and fellow Undefeated writer, Kelley Carter, on their production company called Lodge Freeway Media, which will provide more freedom with content development.

Still, Charlamagne isn't anxious about Hill's future success considering her obvious talent.
