Debra Lee Leaving BET

Last year BET CEO Debra Lee stepped down from day-to-day operations amid rumors she was leaving the company [click here if you missed that].

The time has come...

From Billboard
Debra Lee is stepping down from her post as CEO and chairman at the Viacom-owned cable network. Lee's last day at the company will be Monday, May 28. The news comes after Lee ceded day-to-day oversight of the African-American-focused cable network in November, with Scott M. Mills taking over as president. She is not being replaced.
Lee, who first joined BET in 1986 as its first in-house counsel, built BET to become the top African-American brand as the cabler is in more than 60 countries and reaches 125 million households.

She's too inexperienced to be a CEO of anything!! She dragged BET into the ground and what we need now is someone with the influence, vision and knowledge to bring back to the place of being everything black. Bring back Teen Summit, a place where young voices can be heard. Bring back nightly black news but with a panel and call in or Skype viewers. Bring back 106 and Park, with talented host and not those people who are hired because they're a friend of a friend. Get it together.

Viacom owns BET=the toilet, the sewer. As long as they own it BET will continue to FAIL. The only thing left to is flush this shit down the toilet.
