Chairman/CEO, TV One
It has been almost a year since Liggins stepped into the role of chairman for TV One, increasing his involvement in the network. And by all measures, it seems to be going pretty well. “Fueled by new and returning originals, TV One delivered its highest summer ratings and web traffic in the history of the network,” the media entrepreneur crowed. He has earned those bragging rights. Originals are sizzling, with last month’s “R&B Divas” reunion special tying fellow original “The Rickey Smiley Show” as the network’s number one telecast among 25-54s. Look for him to continue to build synergy between TV One and Radio One properties.
