Jemele Hill Posts Cryptic Message After Michael Smith Leaves SportsCenter
Jemele Hill is posting a cryptic social media message, just days after Michael Smith left Sports Center. On Sunday, the sports commentator wrote,
We know how this goes. The world will always talk sh*t about us, but regardless of what is said, we both know that we always stayed true to who we are. You know the old saying, better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
Hill’s post comes days after Smith left ESPN’s 6 p.m. SportsCenter. On Friday (March 9th), his final program aired. Hill exited the show in February after a somewhat tumultuous tenure marked by controversy tweets about Donald Trump and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Smith anchored the show, dubbed SC6, on his own since Hill’s exit. No word on why he left and who will anchor next.
Michael is a talented commentator and we greatly appreciate and value his contributions and creativity. We are in the process of discussing with him potential next ESPN assignments.
