Years in Industry: 23

Education: BS, Economics; University of Pennsylvania

In just a couple years in Mills’ role as president of BET Networks, he’s already overseen the launch of the Tyler Perry content partnership and the launch of streaming service BET+. In 2020, BET is celebrating its 40th anniversary and the 20th anniversary of the BET Awards. While the COVID-19 pandemic may have gotten in the way of the original plans, that didn’t stop the awards show from going ahead. The BET Awards pulled in big numbers and celebrated its first time being simulcast on a broadcast network—a benefit of the Viacom-CBS marriage.
