Jemele Hill        

Emmy Award Winning Journalist, Senior Correspondent & Columnist for The Undefeated

Emmy Award winning journalist, Jemele Hill is the Co-founder of Lodge Freeway Media and a staff writer for The Atlantic.

Hill was previously the chief correspondent and senior columnist for The Undefeated, ESPN’s content initiative exploring the intersections of sports, race and culture. Prior to joining The Undefeated, Hill co-anchored SportsCenter for a year with her longtime friend and colleague Michael Smith. SC6 with Michael & Jemele debuted in February 2017 as a more personality driven approach to the traditional 6 p.m. SportsCenter. Focusing on sports, music, movies and more, SC6 was born from Hill and Smith’s popular His & Hers podcast and weekday television show, which debuted on ESPN2 in 2014.

Starting this March, on Mondays and Thursdays on Spotify, Unbothered will feature Hill and her co-host along with a rotating cast of high-profile guests. On the air, Hill will explore the news of the day and the intersectionality between the worlds of sports, politics, music, identity and culture. Unbothered is an honest, thought-provoking, always-entertaining analysis of American life, discussed in real-time as it unfolds.

A native of Detroit, Hill is a Michigan State Alum.
