ESPN’s Jemele Hill on Hosting SportsCenter and Dealing With the Haters

The co-host of ESPN's 6 PM SportsCenter show, Jemele Hill, joins us to talk about how she and her co-host Michael Smith are reshaping the sports institution, with a little bit of help from Biggie Smalls and amplified by growing up in Detroit. I also have some "choice words" about the NCAA tournament, a Just Stand Up award to the women of USA hockey and a shocking Just Sit Down award to one of our favorites. We also have Kaepernick watch and merch news!Jemele Hill Follow on Twitter at:, Your March Madness Bracket is Exploiting Student-Athletes— | | | email us: | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del The Funkee Homosapien | Kick in the Door - Notorious B.I.G. | Juicy - Notorious B.I.G. | Good Time - Chasing Goosebumps (feat.
