Hey Black Woman: How’d You Like A Network Designed Just For You? It’s Coming…

centric*Fact: “At more than 10 million strong, and in control of 20 billion dollars in buying power, the African American woman is an increasingly powerful, yet often overlooked consumer,” said Louis Carr, BET Networks President of Broadcast and Media Sales.

With this is mind, Centric, BET‘s 24-hour music and entertainment network, has formed an exciting new partnership with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, the partnership will bring the axed by VH1 hit, “Single Ladies” and “The Queen Latifah Show” (which will air in primetime) to the network, and re-brand Centric as the first network designed for the Black woman.

Carr goes on to say…

“No other network has embraced her with content designed specifically for her– until now. Centric is the first network to deliver the programming that celebrates, inspires and addresses her unique perspective.”

The network will also air ”BEING,” “According to Him + Her,” the annual Soul Train Awards, and Centric Comedy All-Stars.

“We are thrilled to be working once again with Flavor Unit Entertainment and Queen Latifah. She does it all and we are happy to have her join us as a creative force as we continue to grow Centric into a premiere destination for African American women. We couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead,” said Debra L. Lee, BET Networks Chairman and CEO.

  1. I think it would be very appealing to Black women if we had a show, not necessarily a talk show, but a therapy show that addresses real issues that we face as Black women. Being the back bone , caring the weight of everyone on our shoulders..Emotional issues that steam from childhood, DNA encoding. I want to see teaching from a spiritual ( not religious ) POV. I want to see deep consciousness at it’s finest. We have so many who are on this level. Not interested in Fluff. Yes, we know that we are beautiful. We don’t need anymore (than what you’re planning) shows on being fierce and successful. We know that under all that fabulousness, Black women are hurting. Heal a woman and heal a nation!!!!! From one sista to another.
