Angela Rye Is Set To Host A News Show On BET
CNN’s Woke Bae is about to take over BET, too.
Angela Rye is officially set to both host and executive produce a new, primetime news show for BET titled, Angela Rye’s State of the Union. The first episode will be a rebuttal to Trump’s State of the Union address airing Wednesday, January 31 at 10PM. After that, it is scheduled to air quarterly as a series exploring issues that affect Black America.
Rye spoke about her upcoming venture in a statement to Blavity saying, “Working with BET always provides a reminder of why I began to do this work. It is essential that we have platforms where we can discuss our politics, our challenges, and our culture through our respective lenses. The upcoming special will provide a glimpse of what’s to come with our partnership.”
Marc Lamont Hill, who just renewed his contract with BET through the entirety of 2018 told the publication, ”I am also excited to be joined by my brilliant colleague Angela Rye, who will make our team stronger than ever.”
Congrats to Ms. Rye on the new gig!
