Ex-ESPN talking head Jemele Hill is launching a new project

January 9, 2019

In March, Jemele Hill, the former ESPN personality and current staff writer for The Atlantic, will be launching her own podcast titled “Unbothered” in a partnership with music streaming giant Spotify.

“Spotify and I are very like-minded,” Hill said in a statement. “We both believe in being bold and authentic. I am thrilled to get the opportunity to stretch myself in a much different way, with a support system that I believe will bring out the best in me. I look forward to sharing my perspective and experience with Spotify’s many listeners across the world.”


And according to Hill, the podcast won’t “stick to sports.”

“It won’t be a sports podcast, FYI. I’ll dip into here and there. It’s an everything podcast,” she tweeted on Monday.

According the Hollywood Reporter, there will be two episodes a week that will range anywhere between 60 to 75 minutes. There will also be a co-hosts and an array of guests that will discuss, sports, pop culture, politics and music.

Before joining ESPN where she worked for 12 years as a commentator, sideline reporter, and television host, Hill was the only black female sports newspaper columnist in the county during her time at the Orlando Sentinel.

“Jemele is an important voice in sports, race, culture and politics, and their intersection in media,” said Spotify Studios head Courtney Holt. “She will bring her unique point of view to our platform with Unbothered, which is sure to be a favorite of listeners with diverse interests and viewpoints.”
