Jemele Hill Launches Podcast Network with Spotify

Jemele Hill has proven that being “Unbothered” is a great thing for her!

According to Variety, Emmy Award-winning journalist and Webby Award winner Jemele Hill has become more of a mainstay on the Spotify platform by starting her own podcast network called “The Unbothered Network.” The network aims to elevate the voices and stories of Black women.

“The Unbothered Network is more than just a content hub — it’s a space where Black women can hopefully see their full selves,” Hill said in a written statement. “There’s so much about the lives of Black women that haven’t been fully explored, and so many of our stories have either been dismissed or overlooked. I’m also proud of this network because it not only centers Black women but it’s also run by Black women. We can’t empower Black women if we’re not positioning them in leadership roles.”

Hill will be working with longtime rep Evan Dick of Exit 39 as well as a team of creatives and executives to help develop podcasts for The Unbothered Network in collaboration with Spotify.

Courtney Holt, Spotify’s head of studios and video, praised Hill as “an acclaimed journalist, storyteller, podcaster and creative — whose bold and authentic takes on social politics, sports and culture have shined a spotlight on topics that are often overlooked. We can’t wait for her to continue her podcast, and bring new and diverse talent to her network that amplifies and strengthens the voices of this important community.”

The former ESPN personality spoke to BLACK ENTERPRISE when she was on the verge of launching the Spotify podcast and spoke about what was on the verge of taking place.

“From a value alignment standpoint, that’s something I stand for–boosting the voices of young women of color—it’s something they stand for,” said Hill. “And I’m happy to be a part of a brand where we are very like-minded.”
