EVP/GM, Centric;
President, BET Event Productions

Paxton Baker oversees Centric, the digital sister network to BET targeting 25-to-54 year-old African Americans. Baker believes cable can help further its diversity efforts by giving minorities a shot on “an open playing field. Let the employment sector look like the census.” His best advice for industry up-and-comers: “Keep an open mind. Pay attention to the small things and don’t be above doing any job that comes your way.”
