Jemele Hill is leaving ESPN, according to reports.

Hill, who is known for her views on culture and politics, has been an outspoken and controversial presence at the network. Last year, she called President Trump a “white supremacist” on social media. She also tweeted in October that fans should boycott advertisers of the Dallas Cowboys because of comments by owner Jerry Jones on player protests. She was suspended from ESPN for two weeks for that.

The New York Post reported that her $2.5 million a year contract had been bought out.

James Miller, noted for his book on ESPN, tweeted that the split was “amicable.”


She had been on the network’s “Undefeated” program after earlier appearing on the 6 p.m. broadcast of “Sports Center.”

She will leave ESPN at the start of September, according to reports.
