Today marks Jemele Hill’s final day at ESPN. After debuting with the company in 2006, Hill quickly ascended to become one of the company’s most-polarizing personalities.
With her time at the Worldwide Leader coming to a close, Hill penned a farewell letter to her coworkers and the company.
“When I started at ESPN in 2006, I had no idea that such a wonderful journey would take place over the next 12 years,” she said in a statement Friday. “This was the place where I became the best version of myself, both personally and professionally.”
Here are her full comments.
Over the last several weeks, there have been a lot of rumors about my job status. Today is my last day at ESPN.

What’s next for the outspoken sports journalist? Well, after her run-ins with President Donald Trump after calling him a white supremacist, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Hill make the move to a more political climate.
“And to the rest of my ESPN colleagues, I am humbled and forever grateful to have worked with you. I am in awe of your talents. I’ll always be rooting for you,” Hill said on Twitter.
