BET Vs Own Beef: Sheila Johnson Says Oprah Winfrey Need More Blacks
Sheila Johnson of BET during a NPR interview on Tell Me More, says Oprah Winfrey’s OWN TV network, lacks diversity, and suggested that the TV mogul should take some risk and invest in African American experts instead of Dr. Phil and Suze Orman. Mrs. Johnson was as polite about it as she could be with such harsh criticism, IDK, a simple congrats would have been nicer.
Check out Sheila Johnson’s comments to Oprah when you continue. BTW, I would argue that BET needs some more diversity, there are other African Americans experts out there that don’t need a reality show. BET definitely has the genre on lock when it comes to African American reality experts, like Frankie.
The only advice that I say, let’s open up your circle a little bit more. You know, we love the Dr. Phils. We love the Suze Ormans. Let’s open up. There are other people, and there’s also African-American experts out there that I think she should start bringing on her show that can reach even a wider audience. And I think she really should do that and not be afraid to do it. There’s really a lot of great experts out there that really know the businesses at hand. And I’d like to see her open up her circle to do that.
