Back in Black

Say What? Are black folks trying to do television news again? Bob "Pimping ain't easy" Johnson tried that already and the results were disastrous. The news was cancelled and replaced with strippers, ho’s, wannabe ho’s, pimps, players, scallywags, skeezers, bloods, crips and thugs. It was like going to the waffle house after a party. Lets hope this time things will be different.

About BTNC: Black Television News Channel will be the nation's only provider of 24/7 cable news programming dedicated to covering the unique perspective of African American communities. BTNC will provide access to information and educational programming to meet the specific needs of this growing and dynamic community, which is a major consumer of subscription television services. BTNC will provide a new voice that represents African Americans in mainstream media and fosters political, economic, and social discourse. BTNC's programming will shed light on the unique social, economic, and political challenges facing urban communities and help close the "image gap" that exists today between the negative African American stereotypes perpetuated by mainstream media news and our enterprising black communities.
