2023 Sports Media Summit: Jemele Hill

The Claire Smith Center for Sports Media at Klein College of Media and Communication hosts its Sports Media Summit every year. During the event, attendees can connect with top editors, videographers, and leaders in sports media working in Philadelphia and around the country. This year’s event featured two keynote speakers: Max McGee, KLN ‘15, ESPN SportsCenter anchor, and award-winning journalist Jemele Hill.

Professor Matt Fine moderates as Award-winning journalist Jemele Hill closes out the Summit. Hill has been a working journalist for more than 25 years and speaks about how her confidence has developed as she progresses in her career. After 11 months, Hill quit as a SportsCenter anchor due to different values with the company’s culture and creative issues. Hill encourages people to know themselves before they enter the workplace and stay true to their values.
Jemele Hill is now a contributing writer for the Atlantic and has a memoir, Uphill, discussing her harrowing childhood in Detroit, which she says gave her the confidence she needed to overcome challenges.
