Award Winning Broadcast Journalists Jemele Hill And Cari Champion Join CNN+

According to CNN, award-winning Broadcast Journalists Jemele Hill and Cari Champion are joining CNN+ “as hosts of a weekly show for the much-anticipated streaming subscription service debuting this spring.”

Here is what Jemele Hill and Cari Champion had to say about their move to CNN+:

Award-winning broadcast journalists Cari Champion and Jemele Hill are joining CNN+ as hosts of a weekly show for the much-anticipated streaming subscription service debuting this spring.

On Cari & Jemele: Speak.Easy., the co-hosts toast and roast the stories that have everyone talking. From the biggest stories in sports, entertainment, politics, and culture, they’ll tell you how they see it. The show will contribute to CNN+’s slate of original, live programming and be available at launch.

“I’m so thrilled to join CNN+. The beauty and authenticity of my friendship with Jemele has always been at the heart of our creative partnership,” said Champion. “I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the CNN family and share our brand of ‘speakeasy’ with the world.”

“I believe the old adage is that if you work with one of your best friends, then you’ll never work a day in your life. While I made that up, there’s a certain magic that happens when Cari and I collaborate together,” Hill said. “The CNN family is a perfect partner for us because they understand our chemistry and appreciate that our boldness is our strength.”

The pair join CNN+ after collaborating on weekly talk show Cari and Jemele (Won’t) Stick to Sports on Vice TV. Both spent a number of years at ESPN; Hill spent nearly 12 years hosting SportsCenterHis and Hers and writing for The Undefeated, while Champion spent 8 years at the network in roles that included co-hosting SportsCenter Coast to Coast, host of SportsNation, and moderator of First Take.
