Debra Lee Steps Down from Roles at BET

I remember reading, months ago, the shakeup that was going on with Viacom, the company responsible for BET. Back in December, Scott Mills took over day-to-day operations of BET as president while Debra Lee stayed on as chairman and chief executive officer of the network. Well, she has announced after 32 years with the company, she is now stepping down from her position, according to BET.  There was no reason as to why she decided to step away. The Huffington Post says Lee kept the network No. 1 in the ratings with black viewers for 17 years. And although she is leaving BET, she plans to keep working on corporate and nonprofit boards as well as staying involved in the media industry. Lee will also continue her work with the Time's Up movement and Recording Academy Diversity and Inclusion Task Force. Lee said "I could not be prouder of the enormous amount of talent and creativity at BET Networks today and I will always be BET’s number one fan." So does that mean she won't even appear at this year's BET Awards? That woman has a legacy with the company but we definitely wish her well .
