ESPN’s Jemele Hill and Michael Smith are getting ready to take the leap from their own show on ESPN2 to the prominent 6 pm spot on SportsCenter. The duo stopped by Ebro in the Morning to chop it up over sports, politics, and more.
The two discussed their rise from their early ESPN beginnings, their show and podcast “His & Hers” and their transition to the SportsCenter 6 pm spot. Hill started the political convo by discussing how trolls confront her on twitter when she steers from sports. On one hand they tell her to stick to sports, and on the other hand, they constantly tell her that they are more qualified to do her (and Smith’s) job.
The duo also discusses introducing new fans to sports thanks to their show, Carmelo Anthony and more.
