Jemele Hill thanks Michael Smith in last SportsCenter show

Jemele Hill co-hosted SportsCenter for the last time with Michael Smith at 6 p.M. ET on Friday. To be clear, she’s not leaving ESPN. She chose to change her role at the company to become a writer for The Undefeated and will still appear on various ESPN shows.

During her final appearance as SC6 host, Chauncey Billups and Jalen Rose said they’d miss her. Additionally, a clip that went through some of Hill’s best past TV moments was played, and at the very end, she thanked Smith and the production staff.

Hill said:.

“A lot of people here to thank, certainly all the production staff … and to you, Mike. This year has been interesting, to say the least, a lot of ups and downs, a lot of highs. While we won’t be doing this show together, certainly our friendship is not ending … Ya’ll still gonna see me on TV.”

Smith replied:.

“We’re all proud of you, and as your friend, I’m happy that you’re happy. That’s the most important thing.”

Hill and Smith were excellent as co-hosts from their past show His & Hers to SC6. They also had this amazing Twitter exchange when it was announced that Hill would be leaving SportsCenter.
