Jemele Hill Pens Farewell Letter To ESPN

Jemele Hill talking on ESPN.

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.

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.
