American journalist Jemele Hill has been blissfully dating a boyfriend amid rumors of dating her co-star. But she has kept a low key dating life.

42-year-old Jemele initiated her career in journalism by joining the Raleigh News & Observer in May 1997. After working for 18 months, Jemele was hired as a sports writer to report on Michigan State football and basketball for Detroit Free Press. She also covered 2004's Summer Olympics and NBA playoffs.
In 2011, Jemele teamed with Michael Smith to host their first podcast His & Hers and talk about various topics including sports, equality, politics and lesbian rights. The podcast became a success, and ESPN added Jemele on Smith's show Numbers Never Lie which was later rebranded as His & Hers in 2013. Jemele along with Michael became the co-anchors of ESPN's show Sportscenter in February 2017.

The anchor has remained fearless at putting her points forward. But this demeanor charged her a departure from ESPN when she was accused of violating the network's social media guidelines as she was censured for calling president Donald Trump a “white supremacist” in her tweets in September 2017. One year hence, and she is no more in the channel. The revelation of her departure was obtained via her tweet on 14 Sep 2018.

After calling quits on almost 12 years long ESPN career, Jamele wants to try her luck behind the scenes, creating scripted or unscripted content for shows and movies other than sports.
Did Jemele Turn Co-worker Into Boyfriend?
Jemele, who was born on 21 December 1975, got romantically linked with her co-worker, Michael Smith due to their close relationship with each other as colleagues. Their dual appearance in TV and also in various events fueled up the rumors of their dating. When the rumors started the hype in media, Jemele clarified her relationship with Michael claiming that he was not her boyfriend. She stated that he was just a co-worker and a good friend.
Moreover, Jemele joked about dating English actor Idris Elba. Jemele appears to have a huge crush on the actor as she time and again posts about him on her social media. Back in December 2012, she had posted a tweet writing that she was married to Idris in her mind but not in real life.
Though Jemele openly talks about her crush, Idris, she has been keeping her real-life relationship low-key. Jemele is dating a handsome hunk whom she calls as "Ole Boy.' She timely updates her social media accounts with the glimpses of their relationship but also makes sure to not publicize the identity of her boyfriend.
