Longtime journalist and former ESPN personality Jemele Hill is getting set to make yet another huge career decision.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Hill is currently negotiating her release from Spotify.
“Hill and Spotify are negotiating the terms of her separation, which will result in the end of her show and network — at least at Spotify, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the negotiation is ongoing.”
At the moment, Spotify has Hill’s network of shows, such as “Jemele Hill Is Unbothered.”
This news comes amid Hill daring the company to have a Black creator receive a paycheck attuned to what Joe Rogan was getting from the service, which was reported at the time to be around $100 million.
“What I would like to see is for them to hand $100 million to somebody who is Black,” Hill told the Times last year.
Spotify launched a $100 million Creator Equity Fund to promote diversity in response to controversies surrounding Rogan and his presence, but Bloomberg added that the entire initiative got off to a slow start and was nowhere near expending the full $100 million.
Aside from Hill’s potential exit, Joe Budden and Ava DuVernay are two other Black celebrities to leave Spotify recently.
Jemele Hill announced back in 2018 she was leaving ESPN after 12 years with the company. She did so after a buyout of her $2.5 million per year contract.
Hill joined ESPN as a columnist in 2006 before making appearances on several television shows. In 2013, Hill began hosting Numbers Never Lie with Michael Smith, and the name of the show was later changed to His & Hers.
She came under heavy fire back in 2017 when she posted several tweets that were critical of President Donald Trump.
In one tweet, Hill called Trump a “white supremacist.”
She would be suspended for other tweets after calling out Jerry Jones’ stance against protesting during the national anthem.
Just like before, she is sure to land on her feet elsewhere.
