|

If you’ve never heard of the American sports journalist Jemele Hill, you probably know her now from her Twitter comments about President Donald Trump.

Hill called the president a bigot and a white supremacist and the backlash resulting from her opinions caused ESPN to release a statement saying that Hill’s thoughts don’t reflect the thoughts of the company. But aside from a scolding by the managers at ESPN, Hill has done pretty well for herself. Born in Detroit, Michigan, it wasn’t an easy rise to fame for the star reporter. She made her way to become an anchor and sports journalist and serves as an inspiration to so many individuals. How much is this successful star worth today?
