Is BET’s Chairman & CEO Debra Lee Exiting Soon?


(AllHipHop Rumors) Wait a minute!

Days after the successful 2017 BET Awards, rumors are swirling that BET’s Chairman & CEO Debra Lee is planning to make her exit to take another job opportunity.

According to Page Six, inside sources have been making claims that the company isn’t doing well under the CEO’s leadership.

“Tons of people from Viacom were saying that her days are numbered,” claim an insider.

A source also claimed Lee moved to Los Angeles in hopes of possibly getting into some studios.

“She’s been running the place, and it’s struggling . . . There are so many layers of internal politics . . . It takes 20 calls to get through one insignificant thing,” an insider told Page Six.

Another insider told Page Six that the rumors of Lee leaving Viacom and BET are inaccurate.

Earlier this year there was a serious shake up at Viacom and BET with the former president of programming, Stephen Hill exiting, and the network being slapped with a discrimination lawsuit by employee Zola Mashariki.
