2018 was a landmark year for Rice as she moved into a permanent role as GM after serving in an interim capacity since July 2017. Since taking the reins, she’s greenlit several notable programming blocks, including TV One’s True Crime Monday. She’s now looking to expand TV One into a multimedia organization, placing a stronger emphasis on digital content while continuing to incubate urban talent. Rice constantly looks for opportunities to give back; she serves as a mentor for rising cable executives and is an active USC Annenberg School for Communication alumni.
