Marc Lamont Hill is one of the busiest men in all of entertainment and academia. He runs his own coffee shop in Philadelphia called Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee & Books. Hill is also a professor at Temple University. Not to mention, he does a ton of speaking engagements and podcast appearances around the country. With all of that going on, Hill is looking to add another major project to his plate.
The former CNN contributor will be moving to the Viacom family to host a morning show for BET called Black Coffee. As described by Shadow & Act, the show “will keep viewers up to speed on Black Twitter’s buzziest conversations and “feature news-making interviews with top celebrities, athletes, and social media stars.”
BET’s Senior Vice President of Digital Content of Studios David A. Wilson said, “We are excited to have Marc host our new irreverent digital series. Marc is one of the nation’s leading voices on culture, entertainment, sports, and politics, with equal parts unfiltered wit and raw street savvy.” Hill stated, “BET Networks has been home to me for many years, and I am proud to expand our partnership with this innovative series.”
Black Coffee will premiere on Monday, June 3rd on BET and all of its social platforms.
