According to MediaBistro.com, CNN weekend anchor T.J. Holmes could be headed to BET once his contract is up later this year.

They report:

A source at BET tells TVNewser that they have “had conversations” with Holmes, but could not confirm whether he would be joining the African America-focused channel.

Prince says BET “plans to build a show” around Holmes.

For the last few years BET has been trying to reform its image as a video music destination. It’s added scripted shows like “The Game,” “Reed Between the Lines,” and “Let’s Stay Together,” and it plans to air a political documentary later this week examining Herman Cain’s now defunct campaign.

With the 2012 elections quickly approaching, BET could be looking to relaunch its news division by hiring T.J. Holmes.

What do you think of T.J. Holmes possibly moving to BET?

    Let’s just hope that his news show will be on the same level as Tavis Smiley or even Ed Gordon (Remember THAT guy???)

    Hmmm. I’m not sure if that’s a good idea or not…

    And I think he is so attractive.

  3. I cant see CNN letting him go.

  4. So TJ wants to ruin his career the way Jacque Reid did when she left CNN Headline News for Black Exploitation Television?

      @Val – you’re right. BET is where journalism careers go to die.

      On a side note…damn! he is cute. Caught me in a baby gaze.

    • @Val-Agreed! But isn’t TJ just a weekend dude at CNN? Perhaps he sees the move to BET as a way to get more airtime and be more in control if he’s offered his own show. But I must say, BET would be the absolute last destination I’d go to if I were a serious newscaster.

      Other than weekly spots on TJMS, what the heck is Jaque Reid doing anyway?

      She’s a host on LX TV’s “New York Live.”

      Being on TJMS isn’t a bad job. There are millions of listeners.
