    Mike Hill; Broadcast Journalist, TV Personality, Actor

    Mike Hill; Broadcast Journalist, TV Personality, Actor

    Mike Hill is a military veteran, broadcast journalist, TV personality and actor. While many are familiar with Hill from his time on TV (ESPN, FOX Sports and Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta), his 2020 memoir “Open Mike” paints a more complete picture of his life, career and personal struggles. For Hill, that includes a traumatic childhood filled with memories of domestic violence, Hill discovering his stepfather was a hitman and the demise of two marriages.
    In this episode of Headline Rewind with Michelle Fisher, Hill goes beyond the pages of his memoir. This in-depth conversation takes a look back at how Hill successfully used his time in the military to pivot into broadcasting. Additionally, Hill speaks candidly about his past struggles with depression, as he and Michelle discuss mental health in the Black community. Hill even opens up about some of the most uncomfortable parts of his past, and explains why he opted to leave them out of his memoir.
