ABOUT BET HER
BET Her is an American basic cable television network owned by ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks. The network is a spin-off of BET with a focus on general entertainment targeting African-American women. In 2006, the network was re-positioned as BET J to expand its scope to include other music programming of interest to the audience as a companion to BET's soul and hip-hop-oriented digital networks. In 2009, the network relaunched as Centric, with a focus on lifestyle and music programming targeting an upscale African-American audience. In 2014, the network re-positioned its programming to target African-American women, and in 2017, re-branded under its current name BET Her in an effort to reinforce the network's commitment to its new target audience.
