Hill apologized in a tweet Wednesday night (Sept. 13) for putting ESPN in the middle of what she said were her personal beliefs, for which she was unapologetic.

Rob King, senior vice president for news and information at "SportsCenter", said having Ms. Hill and Mr. Smith "appearing on the show last night and doing the show the way they did is the outcome we always desired".
