Former President, Style Media

Coleman Smith’s dynamic leadership made Style a destination network for a diverse audience of young, affluent women. With the transition of Style to the Esquire Network in Sept, the Style era ends. But Coleman Smith’s legacy lives on, with sister net E! already picking up “Tia and Tamera” and “Giuliana and Bill.” Other NBCU nets like Oxygen and Bravo could also pick up various Style titles. Coleman Smith, who will remain at NBCU in a new role, told us she’s proud that Style’s reality shows have avoided stereotypes. “It’s important for content featuring multicultural characters to not only entertain audiences, but inspire them as well,” she says.
