(FOX NEWS) – Outspoken liberal Jemele Hill will no longer host ESPN’s flagship “SportsCenter,” ESPN insiders have confirmed to Fox News.
She will be re-assigned to a new role at The Undefeated, the company’s site that covers the intersections of sports and race, according to Sports Illustrated.
The controversial Hill famously called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter last year. ESPN initially declined to punish her but then sidelined her for two weeks in October when she violated the company’s social media guidelines a second time by calling on fans to boycott the Dallas Cowboys’ advertisers after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they did not stand up during the national anthem.
Several ESPN insiders have told Fox News that the move was Hill’s choice, but sports talk radio host Clay Travis tweeted that she was “booted” due to “collapsing ratings.”
Travis has been in front of all-things Hill and recently speculated that she would be removed from “SportsCenter.” Sports Illustrated media guru Richard Deitsch predicted that Hill’s “tenure as a SportsCenter anchor” was “effectively over” back in October of 2017.
