Former ESPN host and columnist Jemele Hill is joining The Atlantic as a staff writer covering “the intersection of sports, race, politics, gender, and culture,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Jeffrey Goldberg, announced Monday morning.

Hill, 42, left ESPN in August after nearly 12 years with the company, most recently as a columnist for The Undefeated, a web site that focuses on racial and cultural issues related to sports. She has become one of the most well-known figures in sports media in recent years due to her willingness to wade into politics, drawing praise from some and criticism from others — the president of the United States among them.
