Since joining UMC in 2016 from its sister, streaming channel Acorn TV, Noel has employed a results-driven approach and passion for her work with great success. The challenge was to introduce the channel, founded in March 2015 by BET founder Bob Johnson, to consumers and the media through landing press coverage in The New York Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal and many other publications.
