Jemele Hill

Jemele Hill's career as a sports blogger for ESPN is apparently over. Hill's contract will be terminated in September, according to media reporter James Miller.

Hill's departure from the sports network comes nearly a year after she was suspended for 2 weeks without pay for badmouthing President Donald Trump on Twitter.com and for urging her followers to boycott Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' advertisers.

In January, Hill was demoted to ESPN's digital space, UNDEFEATED, as a blogger.

The move by ESPN to terminate Hill's contract came after she reportedly requested a private meeting with ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro on Friday, according to Miller.

Hill's insistence on infusing politics with sports led to a boycott of ESPN and thousands of viewers canceled their cable subscriptions.

    Yea didn’t see that one coming ? happy Sunday roses ??

  • davine puddin

    All i want to know is what brand of hair braiding hair she uses. Asking for myself. Maybe she should be a political shock jock like herman cane ex.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She received a buyout of her contract so she isn’t walking away empty handed . Hopefully she didn’t sign a non-compete clause this will allow her to sign another contract with someone that knows her track record but will be happy to sight hire her.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I don’t think this is right a person should be able to come to a job and remake it how ever they want

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She still may have violated the original agreement . Regardless she secured a bag before she left.

  • quenelle

    So a person requesting a meeting with the boss for purposes of resigning, leaves said meeting with a buy out and that equates to fired? Only if Trump is writing the tweet.

  • jason rite

    Omarosa or Jemele Hill needs to be president.They got my vote!!!
    Coming from a blk man.

  • BingBangBoom

    Chile.... It seems like Unlawful termination from her previous position and she took the low job to save face. Now that her contract is up for the ESPN blog she is making moves for a major lawsuit. Get that check Girl.

  • Ant Hill

    so much for women's rights huh? you all gone learn today to think these white women worried about y'all for real.

  • Dee Moe

    Sandra,
    Please stop the lies just to down this sister. She has to be bought out of her contract. She has a production company that just did a deal to create content. Can you please act like you're black sometime?

  • Waya Hedia

    Well, she is an idiot and did shoot her mouth off as if she had a clue. When you work for someone else, there is limitations. Best to stick to the job you were hired to do.

  • Waya Hedia

    How is it unlawful termination?

  • Waya Hedia

    Yeah.. try that at any real job and watch how fast you are fired.

  • BingBangBoom

    Well didn't she get terminated for her mouth and then they said she can come back as a blogger not her original position as a TV personality?

  • Waya Hedia

    So, not unlawful at all then?

  • Alextra Ballard

    So let me understand this. Alla this stems from her exercising the "First Amendment" Freedom of Speech. Sometimes that Freedom of Speech has dire consequences!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I think this comes from violating company policy

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Let’s see how long that bag last because she just got black balled also

  • Faux Gibbler

    This is gonna turn to “they ended my contract because I am black”

  • Faux Gibbler

    It’s not a termination. It’s them not renewing her contract.

  • Faux Gibbler

    This person said it well. Jemele wasn’t terminated. ”She received a buyout of her contract so she isn’t walking away empty handed . Hopefully she didn’t sign a non-compete clause this will allow her to sign another contract with someone that knows her track record but will be happy to sigh“

  • Michelle

    She can apply at Fox News or cnn is better suited for her since politics is her thing. When I watch ESPN it’s not to see political views or rants about injustice. Impose your wills somewhere else.

  • EMILY POST

    Damn ESPN must of just wanted her to go away.... How did she get fired from blogging??? (real question) ... Damn girl.. She was one of the few ladies on televison that really knew about sports and just didnt seem like a token hire cause somebody wanted a female in that slot. Sad to see her off television talking about sports but No one wanted to hear her politics she took that to far..

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    BET will hire her !

  • Scromes1212

    I hope this works out for her but it could end bad smh this happens a lot. Everyone is in her ear screaming black power and as soon as she switch up to the content to cater to that crowd they don't support smh it's happened to a couple shows recently. Survivors remorse got the boot cause of that, Blackish went left and there ratings dipped smh. Insecure is struggling do to lack of support cause she switched up the content.

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh well. Employers have the right to fire you if you break their rules or make them look bad. She wouldn't shut up, so now she joins the ranks of the unemployed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I called this last year. She not getting fired right now. They sending her to the basement to work on the blog. But they keeping her for right now bc its too obvious to fire her/orchestrate her exit. But its coming. Nobody believed me.

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm surre ESPN lawyers create tight contracts. Her contract was not renewed which is basically getting fired. Same thing happened to Bill O'Reilly and Matt Lauer. They wanted her out of the building! No credible news organization will hire her...she's blacklisted. Plus she's over 40. There's a new fresh face ready to take her place. One that will keep her opinions to herself.

  • FukkFolks2018

    They do support her still. She just got journalist of year award from the black power crowd last week

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Not so much,"unemployed" There Are other jobs. Some Better than ESPN!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Anyways Jemele just won Journalist of the Year award from NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists) last week at their national convention. She will be okay. Journalists of melanin of all genres (radio, print, and TV) still got her. And while many print journalists are struggling right now to stay employed (her old paper, and mine announced more layoffs last week) she can return to her writing roots if need be. Its where she started. They would love to take her back. She will be okay and will find something.

  • dontgetblocked

    The woman took an L. No one will want to work with an out of control big mouth. If she wants to switch to politics instead of sports, she'll pull in the jobs.

  • dontgetblocked

    She had a contract. She broke the rules of the contract repeatedly. Now she's fired! That's the news business!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I hope Jemele just uses her job at ESPN as a stepping stone and Steps to Higher grounds. It Can be done. As long, as She makes Herself Plan A, and Knows that ESPN was Plan B, She Can Achieve Higher!!! GOD Has the Last Word, Not Man!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    A new lucrative five-year contract or a buy-out of probably six months including severance? She lost her job and money. Nobody wants a buyout! It means ...YOU'RE FIRED and we want you out NOW!

  • dontgetblocked

    What job?

  • WhoKnew

    Off topic post that touched my heart this morning:

    So most of us when we awaken we thank God for another day. We lie in bed for a few minutes before getting up and ponder the day and our thoughts. This morning as I awakened, children and babies were on my mind. Maybe because I was just hanging out with my grandson (1 y/o) and my granddaughter (5 y/o) over the weekend and I was looking at the pictures we took. And I couldn't help thinking that somewhere in this world there are babies and children hurting. There is a 7 y/o old turning on the stove fixing breakfast for his or her drug addicted mama and her boyfriend. Or a 1 y/o lying in a 3 day old diaper and hungry because daddy is passed out drunk. Or God forbid, the babies and kids are being used as sexual pawns. I know this is a very heavy subject to think about on this beautiful, sparkling Sunday afternoon but something put it on my heart this morning to say a prayer for all the children in the world. I'm praying for their safety. I'm praying that they are under God's care and ever watchful eye. I'm praying that they are receiving love and nourishment, and kindness. I'm praying that they are happy and can live their lives as children and not have the weight of an adult on their shoulders. Please pray for the children in this world. Not all of them are as fortunate and blessed as my grandkids or your kids and grandkids. Sending love, hugs, and kisses to all the children in the world today.

  • dontgetblocked

    You do realize that she's blacklisted?

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Not with Every organization. I Remember Once, Oprah Was Fired, But Now!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Reporting news....reporting sports, sports blogger! She is talented and she will be all right!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Its two years DGB. Not 6 months left on it. Stop running around here uninformed. Its millions of dollars. Not a few months plus severance. All the information is out there but you refuse to go read it.

    "James Miller describes the separation as “amicable.” Sporting News rounds out that nugget with a little more detail:

    The former “SportsCenter” anchor will accept a buyout of the remainder of her contract with the network, said sources. Hill’s deal with ESPN still has at least two years to run and she stands to walk away with millions of dollars from ESPN parent Disney while she pursues other career opportunities, sources said."

  • dontgetblocked

    NABJ? That's like a BET award. It ain't no Oscar and isn't prestigious. Furthermore, no one will stab you faster in the back than you're own kind. I'm sure ESPN was at the convention lining up replacements for her.

  • dontgetblocked

    Any employer that would pay her the money she's used to. No one wants to hire a problem.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    GOD Knows the Children Need Prayer Today with these Adults!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Baby NABJ is far from not useful and is very prestigious. Where is your membership card at?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Who gives a fukk what you like DGB? True life?

  • dontgetblocked

    Reporting is entertainment. There's an expiration date especially for women. The top jobs are rare especially for blacks. She's not going to get a job as prestigious or that pays as well as ESPN. There's always someone younger, prettier, smarter, and hungrier ready to take your place. ESPN has them lined up...and they'll more than likely be talented women of color.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Some Will Pay More!!! One person's Problem may Not be a Problem to someone else. Same applies to Everyday Relationships, Fact!!! Some people Marry other people's Problems and live happily ever after. It Is Not Impossible. I Have seen it and Experienced it.

  • dontgetblocked

    Is it Sunday in your part of the world? I guess it doesn't matter when you're a demon!

  • dontgetblocked

    LOL! That's a BET award in the news business. Doesn't mean shisht!

  • FukkFolks2018

    It sure doesnt.

    Demon

  • dontgetblocked

    Not if that problem makes them lose money. She lost ESPN money. That's why she was fired!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Sorry. Not true.

    https://www.si.com/tech-media/2018/05/21/jemele-hill-wins-nabj-journalist-award

    Hill appears to be the first person to win the award while primarily covering sports. Last year's award was given to April Ryan of the American Urban Radio Networks. Previous recipients include Lester Holt (NBC News) in 2016, Roland S. Martin (TV One) in 2013, Soldedad O'Brien (CNN) in 2010 and Bryant Gumbel (NBC Today) in 1993.

  • FukkFolks2018

    And what J school did you go to?

  • Scromes1212

    I'm talking about supporting whatever her new shows are. We seen this happen to often

  • dontgetblocked

    I'm not your baby. NABJ is a joke. Been there....done that. Conventions are a bunch of black folks walking around like they're better than the young journalists trying to get a break. They're scared of losing their positions and see everyone as competition. Sex, alcohol, drugs, and fighting are the highlights of the convention. Most people leave with hope...but never get a job. You get a job by networking at all conventions, working your contacts, get a mentor, and refine your craft. You also have to have a good attitude, be flexible, and follow the company rules since you represent your employer. Jemele did not do that so she got fired!

  • TheRealDonaldTrump

    If I get indicted I blaming Paul Manafort! I'm not loyal like him.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I really learned alot, when it was held her in Boston a few years ago. And not only blacks, were in attendance. It’s very hoity toity, in fact

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    It Doesn't mean she would go somewhere else and be a problem or make someone lose money. Some people Learn. She may help them Gain Money!!! Not many corporations turning that down.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think they surely will. She is not an actress. she is a journalist. black journalists support each other more than any other genre.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Indeed you did
    ??

  • dontgetblocked

    She was fried from a small news organization not a power-house.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    I thank you for the good chuckle.

    Happy Sunday.

    Blessings to you

  • FukkFolks2018

    This is beyond true...lies..and you know it. Sex drugs and fighting at NABJ. Girl good fukkin BYE

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Oprahs First job was Small. She Became Her Own Power-House!!! Who to say someone else Can't? Others Have and Will. A person Is his/her Only obstacle.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Yep. Asian American journalists have an association (I think its AAJA) and so do Native American and Hispanic journalists. And all attend the others conventions etc. Very inclusive

  • dontgetblocked

    Oh well if it's in Sports Illustrated. NABJ awards aren't real. You're only competing against black folk not everyone in the world of journalism. An Emmy, Pulitzer Prize, Edward Murrow, or Society of Professional Journalists awards, etc are far more prestigious and valuable to have on your resume.

  • dontgetblocked

    Just like any other black event. Older men hounding young girls. Let me know when you land that lucrative gig from attending a NABJ convention.

  • FukkFolks2018

    A Pulitzer Prize? For someone who is on TV? They dont cover broadcast TV. She isnt IN Print. Girl you are CRAZY. AF.

  • dontgetblocked

    The white employers show up to interview for that one black spot that's open. It's also a great vacation for them. It is hoity toity unlike AAJA, NAHJ where these races actually try to help each other. Black folks...crabs in a barrell.

  • dontgetblocked

    She's a blogger and she started in print news. Please do your research. You clearly aren't a journalist because you don't search out the facts before you post. Instead of arguing and being negative, learn. You're just like Jemele. A bad attitude will get you nowhere but fired and holding a NABJ award instead of an Emmy.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Who in the hell going to Detroit for vacation? SO IS IT UPSCALE or full of sex, drugs, and fights? As another Rose told you last week...pick a side. You sound delusional

  • FukkFolks2018

    Girl. I am very familiar with her resume. I am no longer in media. I left eons ago after taking my own buyout during a downsize at my paper, over a decade ago. If I wouldnt have taken it...I would have left EMPTY HANDED and would have been LAID OFF. Nobody is left there now. They did another round of layoffs just last week. Newsroom went from 150 employees to now its 20 at best. Good day to you.

  • Joy King

    I'm all for freedom of speech but I'd advise a person be self employed if they want to exercise it. You also can't worship money because your views might not always be popular which can hurt your pockets. Hopefully Jemele has a nice cushion of money to hold her over but I definitely believe she has another gig lined up. Maybe not as lucrative as ESPN but it will be a great platform for her voice to be heard.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Fired, released, not renewed... that's basically semantics at this point.
    Bottom line is they didn't want her there any more so they let her go.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Making $2.5 million a year to talk about sports is a good job.
    Millions of people taking care of their families on $40,000-50,000 a year would have been happy to trade places with her.

  • dontgetblocked

    Jemele Hill's firing is a lesson for all black women. We're usually the loudest, most aggressive, and hardest to work with on the job. We know everything and know how to do everything so we don't learn and grow. We ain't scared of nothing not even our employer. Where does it get us...overlooked, left behind or fired. Look at black African women or Haitians. They know how to behave in corporate America. They pursue graduate degrees and work hard. They're not sitting around gossiping about nothing and sticking their noses in nonsense. Jemele reports on sports not politics. Why the hell did she think it was okay to talk about politics? Anyone can get called to HR for talking politics at work because it's easy to offend someone. That's a black woman for you...just going to change up the job and do what she wants and then she's somewhere looking stupid when she gets fired and blacklisted.

  • Ryan

    ESPN has gotten so boring, no personality (outside of Stephen A. Smith but I don't need to be hearing all that yelling in the morning) and that's why their ratings have been dropping over the years. Anyway good luck to her on her new opportunities!!

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Some would, Then, you have some who Would Not!!! Other factors come into play, that Are More Significant than Money. Again, the Amount of money, Does Not Always equal a Good Job!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    She's an idiot! I didn't know she was making that much.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. If I'm being paid $2.5 million a year to talk sports, no way I'm jeopardizing my money talking all that political stuff that could get me fired.
    $2-million dollar a year jobs don't grown on trees. When you get one of those, I'd think a person would want to hold onto it as long as they can.

  • big dick Cheney

    ohhhhh i get it. it’s a problem 4 black people 2 speak up about FUS but every other thing on tv sports included is about gay rights. gays get more support than black people. women will get way more respect than a black man because they come 2gether. if u a black persons and u got a problem with jemele then u’re nothin more than HOUSE NI**ER. if things ain’t right u speak up that’s the same thing that was taught in school. yea it may be some consequences but in the end she will win we don’t need espn we can start our own network but no HOUSE NI**ERS always in the way. BIG LOVE 2 JEMELE and KAP and f*ck anybody that got a problem with it black people included

  • dontgetblocked

    Middle-aged white women are often in positions of power because they benefit the most from Affirmative Action. Black women fill the entry level positions. We're always late and slow moving. Never have any hustle to us. Sitting around gossiping and speaking in loud aggressive tones. I never get too close to black women or white women in the workplace. Whites are sneaky while a black women will cuss you out and threaten to kick your azz. Just ghetto with no corporate training. We're always the first to ask a question and try to boss our co-workers around while speaking in broken English. Never know when to shut up and just do the damn job. Just rachet and immature as the last line of your post proves.

    Black folks have gotten to the point where they think because The Donald is president and everybody calling racism they don't have to follow the rules anymore and just scream racism at every turn. Donna Brazile sold her soul for Hillary by sneaking questions to her and lost her position as head of the DNC. Maxine Waters acts like a insane idiot and feels she can get away with anything. It won't be a moment too soon if they could put that hound out of her misery. Omarosa turned out to be a snake. Somebody gives her an opportunity and look what she does knowing how difficult it is for black folks get any jobs in the white house. What a fool. Those morons kneeling at the NFL are only hurting their future and paycheck but they don't see it that way. Black folks only ruining their own selves by always crying victim and racism. Completely emotional no common sense at all.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I never said anything other wise ma'am. Jamele should know newsrooms better than that. They don't welcome us to share our thoughts like that with viewers or primary audience. She lost them money. I don't think she should have said anything political, And expected to stay employed there. I've had this stance from the start tho. Your clueless ass been running your trap so very hard, or you would have known this.

    I also think she knew the consequences, is fine with this outcome (ie to touch on what you said, she did do this to herself and she is fine with it), and I commend her. I've also said I'm no Jemele fan or ever was. But good for her for doing her. Everyone ain't able. Finally, she won. Further stories are NOW saying she is walking away with $5 million dollars. To get the hell on. I would. And she IS.

    Who is going to hire Jemele? Her attitude is a liability. If she can't make it at ESPN, she can't make it anywhere.

    If you're doing your own podcast and are already well known you don't need to hire anyone.

  • dontgetblocked

    The best post of the day. Notice ...three black women who have negative images. Always doing everything except their damn jobs.

  • dontgetblocked

    I bet the buyout was for significantly less and she didn't have a choice. These companies always protect themselves.

  • dontgetblocked

    They just don't get it. They paid her to leave. Most of the money will be eaten up in taxes. She probably has a non-compete that keeps her off a major network for at least a year. Most of all she's blacklisted.

    Ummm....yeah she had a "good job", but sometimes your integrity and principles matter more than being a corporate monkey and dancing quietly for the master. So if your bag is tight sometimes you can afford to say screw it, I'm out. Her buyout is being reported as $6Milli so, yeah she's free and secure to say whatever the F she wants to...kitchen table or not

  • WokeBlackMan

    They sending her out the door with a $6 million payout so yeah she ain't looking that stupid....

  • LYRICS

    ALL OF THAT PART!!

    I totally disagree with your comments and please don't put all black women in that category because it's just no true. Most times black women have to prove themselves and men can do and say whatever they want without being judge but as soon as a woman speaks up or says how she feels, she is considered, aggressive or hostile. You have to stand for something or you will fall for anything and I'm sure she isn't hurting. It's not always about a job or pay check but at the of the day having integrity and not selling out for damn paycheck.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    She’ll be fine.

  • ATL White Guy

    Yep, back with an occasional observation. I personally did not mind the blend of sports & politics on 'His & Hers'. But i'm not closed minded like some people are who don't want to hear diverse viewpoints. I guess i'm not part of the audience who just only want to see black athletes perform and not use their platform for change. Sports can be a agent for change, but I guess ESPN wants to make sure they don't want to offend people.

  • Rachel B

    You have a slave mentality.

    Ooh honey, I don't know what area you live in or what corporations you've been working for but I have not seen black women acting this way so please stop generalizing. This is simply untrue for the most part. There are TONS upon TONS of educated black women who are professional. If there was anyone as ratchet and ghetto as you speak of, they wouldn't even make to a corporate position so your narrative really makes little sense. I'm not saying I haven't seen these type of women you speak of but they are never in a corporate setting.

  • mona q

    THANK YOU!

  • Logan Roberts

    Try this at your job & see what happens. Y'all talk all this shyt, but I bet you be the main ones quiet as a church mouse at YOUR place of employment ?

  • Logan Roberts

    Thank you sir.

  • Sdot33

    so she will be fine....this don't define her

  • Phillybruh

    She walks away with 6 million bucks in the process.

  • Phillybruh

    She's in the media so her having somekind of opinion on things like politics and sports shouldn't be surprising. I wouldn't expect JOE BlOW customer service rep to go off on company time No.

  • Phillybruh

    Its a basic cable channel unless they cut cable all together she couldn't have costs them subscribers at that large a number

  • Karen Brady

    The most difficult people I've had the misfortune of working around are middle-aged and older white women. THIS.

  • Karen Brady

  • Karen Brady

    BIG LOVE 2 JEMELE and KAP

  • Ryan

    They're bitter as hell, bad attitudes for no reason and don't wanna listen to black folks (but quick to try to blame us when ish goes left).

  • TMW

    Bought out or fired - who didn’t see this coming though, after the demotion from on-air personality to blogger???

  • Eileen

    Thank you now you have another unemployed black person. Leave politics at your house

  • Eileen

    Yep!!

  • Eileen

    Your job hires you to do a job not to make political commentary if she wants to be political get a job at Fox and I feel the same way about the atheletes!

  • Eileen

    He does yell alot...LOL

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She is actually excited at her future prospects ! She may become a political commentator!! Go girl I say ! When one door closes , a bigger one is opening!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    She said she might be a political commentator... that be a great ay to express her opinion.

  • Dee Moe

    She got 6.7 Million I call that a buy out. Plus a new deal for her production company.

  • Dee Moe

    If taking a L is leaving a job that wanted to mute you with 6.7 million dollars and your freedom to do what you want is a L. I'll take that. Plus she's well respected in the journalism field.

  • Li-Wright

    And you know this how?

  • ATL White Guy

    ESPN was all good with the social issues on His and Hers, they actually promoted them to the 6 PM sports center. It's only after Trump got mad at what Jemelle said about him that all at once it was a issue. That plus ratings decline. ESPN should a just stayed with His and Hers.

  • big dick Cheney

    i’m a entertaining person

  • Faux Gibbler

    LOL Jemele won’t stay low.

  • Faux Gibbler

    No. Bill and Matt were told not to come back in. Jemele is finishing her contract.
