If you follow Jemele Hill on Twitter, than you know this Royal Woman has no problem speaking (or tweeting) her mood, especially when it comes to politics. Now she is joining the podcast gang.
On Monday, Hill will be launching her new, weekly podcast show titled, “Jemele Hill is Unbothered”. It premieres on Spotify on Monday (April 15). She will be doing interviews and give commentary on sports, politics and other topics. This new platform will allow Hill to be ‘unbothered’ and free to share her opinions.
Hill has always stirred the pot with her commentary but she really knocked it 2017 when she called President Trump u a white supremacist and “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime,” while she was working as a ESPN host.The network started to distanced themselves from her but Hill took the power in her hands and left ESPN completely in 2018 after 12 years.
“I didn’t like the fact that it caused damage to people I care about and to relationships that I built, but in terms of what I said, I don’t regret it,” she told Fox Sports. “In my mind, I’ve only been proven right so it’s hard for me to regret it knowing that I’m on the right side of history.”
Since then, she has been writing for the Atlantic and speaking her mind on matters focused in the black community. #blackjournalistsmatter
“The Atlantic made perfect sense to me because during this period, it’s critical to be aligned with people who understand this mission: Sports is a great entry point for exploring what’s happening in the wider society,” she says in her Atlantic bio. “You can’t talk about sports without talking about race, class, gender and politics. I want to explore the complications and discomforts with a publication that has a long history of supporting this kind of work.”
Hill is also busy planning a wedding. She got engaged to her boyfriend, Ian Wallace in December.
So, uh, some personal news to share … I’m engaged pic.twitter.com/jqYtWGAofM
