Jemele Hill is certainly one of the big winners of 2018. In 2017, she made history at ESPN with Michael Smith as the first all-Black anchor team on “SportsCenter” in February 2017. However, when she criticized Donald Trump for accurately calling him a “white supremacist,” ESPN famously reprimanded her. Hill was attacked by the president and several people in his fanatical Make America Great Again base. Nonetheless, since then, Hill has landed with LeBron James and The Atlantic.
Now, she also has a new love in her life. Jemele Hill just announced she is engaged.
Hill wrote on Instagram, “I’ve called this my year of transition. I left a job, started a new job, moved to a new city and now … I’m engaged to the love of my life. I’m overjoyed and immensely blessed.”
She also wrote on Twitter, “So, uh, some personal news to share … I’m engaged.” See the beautiful ring:
It certainly has been a year of transition for Hill. Back in October, she said, “I’ve been through difficult swings in my career. It was about the fact that I can’t commit to something that I know isn’t right for me, that I know isn’t going to bring out the best in me, and that I know is going to be kind of a waste of time.”
Words to live by. Her future husband is Ian Wallace who is clearly a lucky guy.
Congrats to the happy couple!
