BET is leaving its headquarters in Washington D.C. and is heading to the Big Apple. "The closing of BET Network’s Washington, D.C., office has been an ongoing transition in line with our overall strategy to make New York BET’s new headquarters," a BET spokesperson said Tuesday in a statement. "We are very proud that Washington, D.C., was the birthplace of BET Networks, the first network and the premier destination for African-American audiences for the past 37 years." It’s reported that there are 20 salaried employees and 40 freelancers at the office. The doors at the D.C. office will be closing on July 7th. Employees were not told whether they could transition to New York or Los Angeles or if they would be laid off outright.
