According to the Hollywood Reporter, BET is making a lot of changes to stay at the top. There latest was the removal of Debra Lee as BET President. She will remain in her role as chairman and CEO while Scott M. Mills will take over the day-to-day operations of the company. And those have not been the only executive changes. This summer BET moved its headquarters from Washing, D.C. to New York and Los Angeles. In addition, Tyler Perry is ending his contract with Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network to partner with BET and promises nearly 100 hours of annual programming to the African American-focused cable network in 2019. Lee said, "I have spent more than 20 years leading this incredible enterprise and I am so proud of the BET team and all that we have accomplished. As I look to the future, I believe it is the right time to take a step back from day-to-day responsibilities at BET.”
