Former ESPN TV hosts Jemele Hill and Cari Champion are taking their new show, Stick to Sports to a whole new level when it comes to sports. The show premieres August 19 on Vice TV at 9 pm CST.

For years, the two have been admonished to “stick to sports,” but this show is so much more and a testament of doing the opposite of what critics want because the duo will be talking about more than sports.

Viewers will hear about a myriad of topics, such as politics, the pandemic, societal ills and the Election 2020, in addition to topics that encourage viewers to critically think about the state of the sports world. 

For example, in the promo video, Champion asks Hill, “Is that racist,” referencing NFL teams to Uncle Ben. 

These two Black women are challenging what people should think and going out of the boundaries to create content that resonates and makes an impact with their viewers. They are driving the conversation to move the sports world forward.
