SC6 - January 24, 2017

In February of 2017, ESPN rebranded SportsCenter as SC6 with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith as the new anchors. This past September, Hill famously became the subject of a national conversation in response to a series of tweets regarding comments about Donald Trump — including one where she referred to the Trump as  “a white supremacist.” A White House spokesperson called for Hill’s firing, as Trump also responded to Hill via Twitter. ESPN then released a statement staying Hill’s comments “do not represent the position of ESPN” and subsequently suspended Hill for two weeks for violating the company’s social media policy.
