Recently, Debra, who has been with the network for 26 years, spoke with FOX Business Network’s Gerri Willis and revealed that BET has made long strides in improving and getting more strict about what they allow to air. The shift in programming has caused them to deny videos from major money-making artists such as Kanye West, Rihanna, and Ciara

On the Criticism of Degrading Women

“I think the criticism has gone away. The first thing I did, which was in the works anyway, was to create more original programming that shows different images of women. So our sitcoms have started doing that. We’ve got more documentaries. We’re going to get into the drama business. We’ve cut back on the amount of music videos, that’s how we grew up but now we’re in a position where we can do other kinds programming.”

On Becoming More Selective With Programming

“We’ve gotten more strict on what we allow on air. We used to live by broadcast standards, but as the hip hop industry got a little more risqué we had actually had to bring that back some and say just because it can be on the air doesn’t mean it has to be on the air.”

Authorities and Megatron’s family believe the murderers were after Megatron’s dough and a watch he got as a gift from his little girl

Authorities revealed:

The sad revelation came after police announced the arrest of William Williams, 21, and Richard Cromwell, 20, for the murder of the 32-year-old, whose real name was Corey McGriff.

The two men approached McGriff on Osgood Ave. about 2 a.m. March 27 and one of the men fired a single shot in the DJ’s body, killing him, police said.

The heartless pair swiped a wad of cash from McGriff’s pocket and the watch off his wrist, police and family said.

“It was an inexpensive watch that his daughter gave him,” his mother, Louvenia McGriff, 60, told the Daily News from her Georgia home.

“He loved it because she gave it to him,” she said.

The grieving mother said detectives told the family the watch was recovered shortly before the two men were arrested. READ MORE

The rap star tells WQAD.com that his business hasn’t been bouncing checks, adding that the people making the allegations are probably “just jealous” of his success. The restaurant’s other owner, Nick Cimino, says they did have a few checks bounce when the restaurant first opened, but notes that the “glitches” they had, have since been fixed. Cimino goes on to say that the entire incident is just an example of disgruntled former employees trying to get back at their employer.

Flavor Flav’s Chicken opened in Clinton, Iowa at the beginning of the year. READ MORE
