Jarrett Hill has turned his journalistic eye and satirical snark into one of the most distinctive political and pop culture voices today. Jarrett is regularly guests on cable news, and a contributor to The New York Times, Variety, and Essence, among others.
Based in Los Angeles, Mr. Hill serves as the Vice President of the National Association of Black Journalists’ Los Angeles Chapter. Jarrett is a sought-after host, frequently covering the 2020 Presidential Election on the new Channel Q. He co-hosts FANTI, a podcast on Maximum Fun, with Tre’vell Anderson. Unabashedly self-referential and well-researched, they cover pressing political stories with a flippant, intersectional eye.
While studying media at Clark Atlanta University, he produced radio, television, and broadcasts. Here, he observed the lack of diverse voices in journalism and entertainment as an opportunity to elevate underrepresented voices, from filmmakers to tastemakers. Prioritizing diversity and inclusion in journalism, Jarrett uses his role as the Vice President of The National Association of Black Journalists of Los Angeles (NABJLA).
Mr. Hill was named to the Ebony Power 100 in 2016. He is known, most notably, for breaking the 2016 Melania Trump/Michelle Obama RNC plagiarism story.
He is fond of cooking, carbohydrates, interior design… and watching more television than he publicly admits.
Overall, Jarrett uses his platform to question stories of the day, bring out his guests’ unabashed opinions, and provide takes that are thoughtful, but unfiltered.
