Angela Rye has, for a long time, been known for her real and passionate commentary about politics and world events. This is why we are super excited that in a couple of weeks the CNN commentator will be joining forces with BET to introduce a new primetime news series!
Rye will be both hosting and executive producing the television special, that will air quarterly. The specials will focus on addressing issues in the black community that effect day to day living. The show is tentatively titled “Angela Rye’s State of the Union,” which is a rebuttal to Trump’s State of the Union address.
Angela says, “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 first episode of her new special will air January 31st at 10 p.m eastern time!
