News traveled quickly on Saturday night, that controversial writer and host Jemele Hill had reached an agreement on a contract buyout with ESPN. However, the details of that buyout were not known at the time.
Now, reported details of that buyout are beginning to emerge and it appears that ESPN was willing to pay an awful lot of money to end their relationship with Hill.
According to Real Clear Life:
Following a conversation she requested with network president Jimmy Pitaro, ESPN and Hill reached an “amicable” split and she will be bought out of her $2.5 million contract.
The contract reportedly has at least two years remaining on it so Hill will likely walk away with a package in the seven figures as a result of the agreement.
