Trust the process feat. Michael Smith

Part 1: In the midst

“How are you doing?” A simple question gets a very loaded and candid response from Tammy & Mike’s special guest, Michael Smith from ESPN’s SC6. In Part 1 of our 2 part special, Michael discusses his recent trip to Los Angeles for the NAACP Image Awards, his first year hosting SportsCenter, and his thoughts on all of the attention (good and bad) he and his co-host, Jemele Hill, have gotten since starting their new positions. A major proponent of “trust the process”, Michael provides an in-depth look of his life as he is in the midst of dealing with unexpected change.


Part 2: moving forward

“What do you do when the process takes you in an unexpected direction?” In part 2 of their interview, ESPN’s Michael Smith opens up to Tammy & Mike about who he turns to for guidance while reflecting on fatherhood and lessons he hopes to leave his kids.
