Hill is always on the hunt for programming that will make BET stand out. He recently secured deals with John Singleton for a new show called “Rebel” and is working on “Madiba” the first portrayal of Nelson Mandela by a black director. Hill is passionate about music, having gotten his start working with the legendary Elroy Smith, who was program director at WILD-AM in Boston. Hill also loves to attend concerts and discover new acts to introduce to the BET audience. Not surprisingly, his favorite charity with which he works has a musical tone—LifeBeat: The Music Industry Fights AIDS.

What are the television show/s – cable or broadcast  – best embrace diversity?
Let’s call it “inclusion”. Sports. It is TRULY all about your talent.

My personal election campaign slogan would be…
“What have you got to lose?”. Oh. Wait. Someone took that one….

Favorite charity organization you work with?
