Media mogul Tyler Perry reportedly stands as the new owner of BET. According to numerous reports, the initial report by Streamr had the internet in a frenzy that the media mogul will take control of Black Entertainment Television famously known as BET

However, Paramount, BET, or Perry has yet to confirm or deny the report. Fans are excited and anticipating a confirmation.  

If the deal is finalized, Perry would be able to add the cable station and streaming service to his media empire which also includes the 330-acre Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta.

It would also open the path for BET to receive advertising dollars geared to minority-owned media companies. General Motors and Coca-Cola have committed to significantly increasing ad spending for companies in that sector.
