Huge! Tyler Perry Reportedly “In Talks” to Buy BET

Published: Monday 6th Mar 2023 by Sam

In a developing story, it’s being reported that Tyler Perry may be in the running to buy Black Entertainment Television – known more widely as BET. 

Full story below…

THR reports that Paramount is “exploring a potential sale of a majority stake in its BET.”

That move in itself would be seismic given that it would encompass BET’s broader business portfolio  – thus meaning any such sale would include BET, VH1, and the BET+ streaming service.

After breaking that story, a fresh update claims that Tyler Perry – who has been in a longtime partnership with BET and Paramount at large – is “in talks” to buy the majority stake.

Per the cited source, discussions are described as being “in the early stages” and there is no guarantee of a purchase.

Should all move forward, Paramount is expected to maintain a minority stake.

Interesting times!

      All they pay is Tyler Perry stuff anyway. BET+ app is basically Tyler Perry+. It would be nice for BET to be black owned again!
