If it’s Thursday, Jemele Hill must be in. . . well, she’ll have to check her calendar and get back to you. “If it’s not in my calendar, I don’t know where I am or what I’m doing!” said Hill, one of the busiest reporters/collumnists/analysts on the ESPN roster.
Hill will be in Monroe, La. as the sideline reporter for Friday night’s Baylor at University of Louisiana Monroe game (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) and then she’ll appear on Sunday’s Sports Reporters at 10:30 a.m. on ESPN2.
In between that, Hill’s feature on Alcorn State’s first-year head coach, Jay Hopson, will run on Sunday’s Outside the Lines (10 a.m., ESPN2). Hopson is the first white football head coach in Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) history.
In the podcast above, Hill discusses her work on that story with producer Steve Buckheit; her multiple assignments across ESPN platforms and how she’s adjusting to her sideline reporting gig. There might also be a slight dig at her Friday night play-by-play guy, Carter Blackburn, at the end. Perhaps.
