SI Media Podcast: Featuring ESPN commentator Jemele Hill

Saturday September 5th, 2015

Welcome to the 18th episode of the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch. In this podcast, which is published weekly, Deitsch interviews members of the sports media about their work, and interesting people about the sports media.

This week’s guest is ESPN commentator Jemele Hill, the co-host of the ESPN2 daily show “His & Hers” and a podcast of the same name. In this episode, Hill discusses how her show is put together, her journey to become recognized as an on-air opinionist at ESPN, the dearth of black women offering opinion in the sports media, why Bill Simmons left ESPN, the prospects of The Undefeated site launching, how she approached interviewing Janay and Ray Rice, what it’s like for women in sports—and specifically minority women—in social media and more.
