Hill speaks with Charlamagne, Envy and Angela Yee about why she left ESPN. She explains that the decision was amicable and she is very grateful to have worked for the company. Her decision was based on her feeling of wanting to be more active and vocal about the political climate. She also goes into details on how she didn’t speak about politics on her shows, only when it concerned sports contrary to what some people believed.
She also speaks on how mental health is a big issue in the black community, and how happy she is to be donating to the Breakfast Clubs’ Change 4 Change radiothon event for PROJECT 375. PROJECT 375 was founded by NFL wide-receiver Brandon Marshall and his wife Michi in 2012. PROJECT 375 is a non-profit organization designed to help bring awareness about mental health.
