She shades Trump at every turn and gives us one-liners we quote for weeks on end — she’s essentially our best friend in our head. And now, instead of being featured on CNN, Angela Rye will front her own show on BET.
According to BET, Rye will executive produce and host “quarterly news specials that will delve deeply into the issues and stories that matter to Black America.” Angela Rye’s State of the Union (working title), a primetime rebuttal to President Trump’s State of the Union address, will be the first of her quarterly specials to air Wednesday, January 31 at 10PM ET on BET. “Working with BET always provides a reminder of why I began to do this work. It is essential that we have platforms where we can discuss our politics, our challenges, and our culture through our respective lenses. The upcoming special will provide a glimpse of what’s to come with our partnership,” Rye stated in a press release obtained by HH.
Oh, and it’s not just Angela we’re looking forward to … Marc Lamont Hill is back as well! The award-winning BET News anchor has renewed his contract to continue anchoring BET News’ 2018 breaking news coverage, specials and town halls. “I couldn’t be happier to remain a part of the BET family. I am proud to help deliver the programming that our community needs and deserves. I am also excited to be joined by my brilliant colleague Angela Rye, who will make our team stronger than ever,” Hill said.
