Jemele Hill will leave ESPN after accepting a buyout from the company, Sporting News’ Michael McCarthy reported Saturday.

According to James Andrew Miller, who co-authored a book detailing the history of ESPN, Hill’s departure will become final Sept. 1. Miller described her buyout as “amicable” and a “long time coming.”

Hill had worked alongside Michael Smith on the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter before leaving that role and joining The Undefeated in January.

ESPN issued a statement last September distancing itself from remarks Hill made about President Donald Trump. Hill had called Trump “a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists” and “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime.”
