LSJ and WKAR

Michigan State University graduate, now SportsCenter host on ESPN, Jemele Hill, made national headlines earlier this week when she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist via Twitter. ESPN issued a statement noting that Hill's comments do not represent the company and that they had addressed it with Hill. This morning on Twitter President Trump said ESPN "is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth."

WKAR news director embraces “digital” future, says “you can’t tell a story if you can’t write”

WKAR Public Media’s digital news director Reginald Hardwick was born in Vietnam “and was one of the Amerasian children left in an orphanage” and then adopted by a family in Colorado when he was three months old. He has family ties to Michigan, though, and always remembers his family being voracious news consumers.
