Day in the Life: Jemele Hill

Very few people get a chance to earn a living doing what they love, but columnist Jemele Hill is one of them.

Hill, whose primary job is as an columnist, has repeatedly demonstrated why she deserves a place on ESPN TV shows like Around the Horn, ESPN’s First Take and The Sports Reporters. Recently, she has also begun a weekly digital opinion series titled “Hold That Thought,” which can be found here. In addition, you can catch up on Jemele’s prior writing by clicking here.

As a reporter covering everything from the Olympics to the World Cup, Hill’s sports acumen is tested on a daily basis.

Her colleague Skip Bayless considers Hill, “one of the toughest debaters to face on First Take.”

With multiple shows to juggle, columns to write and video commentaries to tape – not to mention a long distance commute from her home in Orlando – how does Jemele get it all done in a day?

Check out the video above to see what a recent January day was like for Hill on air.
