VIBE Vixen’s 2011 HOT 25 (Summer Edition)
President and CEO of BET Holdings, Inc, Debra Lee runs what we know as BET. The Black Entertainment Television network has taken some harsh criticism during her reign, but it still remains one of the only networks left catering to a young African American audience. Lee, a businesswoman hailing from South Carolina, has been able to run this machine for six years now while increasing the budget and displaying better production; that deserves a tip of our hats. As BET becomes more technologically advanced, incorporates more positive Black programming and maintains their TV gem Centric, Vixens must applaud this southern belle for all her hard work!
