Robert Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reported that Jemele Hill has left ESPN's "SportsCenter." Hill hosted the six o'clock hour of the show where she had been the center controversy after making polarizing statements about President Donald Trump. Many were critical of her injection of politics in sports and are glad she is gone. However, her intelligence and eye-opening commentary were enlightening and she will be missed by many. What do you think?

People tune into SportsCenter for the highlights, not the politics. Jemele Hill has opinions and that's great, but she should keep them to herself when she's on SportsCenter, a show primarily about sports news. It'll be nice to see just sports on a sports network for a change.

Hill brought something different to ESPN. There was finally personality and a strong presence who wasn't afraid to express what she believed to be important intersections of sports, politics, and culture. Anchors aren't supposed to be robots. They are humans who feel just as much as anyone else does. She will be missed as an anchor for SportsCenter.
