Enterprise, hosted by Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Ed Gordon, is unduplicated as a powerful and uplifting weekly news and lifestyle program. Our World features headline celebrity profiles, provocative and intelligent roundtable discussions, and riveting human-interest stories. In addition, each week, Gordon, one of the best interviewers in broadcast journalism, goes one-on-one with the best, brightest, and most compelling personalities in black America, ranging from U.S. Sen. Barack Obama to rapper-actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, to the cast of the hit movie Dreamgirls.
Our second show, Black Enterprise Business Report, hosted by Emmy nominated and former CBS 2 News co-anchor Shon Gables, is must-see TV for those who are passionate about black entrepreneurship, financial empowerment, and building wealth–yes, I’m talking about you. Premiering this past June, Black Enterprise Business Report is business and financial television at its best, featuring interviews with today’s most prolific power players, from billionaire BET founder and Charlotte Bobcats owner Robert L. Johnson to Deborah C. Wright, the CEO of Carver Federal Savings Bank, the nation’s largest black bank. But the real focus of the show is you. Each week Gables interviews leading financial experts and the editors of BE for a wealth-building segment designed to give you information and strategies you can use to eliminate debt, boost your credit, and achieve your financial goals. In addition, Careers/Lifestyle Editor Sonia Alleyne shows you ways to enjoy the fruits of your wealth-building efforts in our “Luxe Life” segments. Simply put, there is no other show like it on television.
Take it from me, once you check out these great shows, you’ll want your BE TV every week. But if you miss an installment of one of our programs (or forget to set your DVR), don’t worry: You can now watch previously aired segments of both Our World with Black Enterprise and Black Enterprise Business Report right from your laptop computer.
