Alfred Liggins succeeds president-CEO Wonya Lucas who’s out at the end of October.
Alfred Liggins, CEO-president of Radio One, will add oversight of all daily network operations for TV One to his portfolio as CEO of TV One effective Nov. 1. As a result, current president-CEO Wonya Lucas will step down at the end of the month.
“Wonya has created a strong foundation for TV One’s future success with the launch of two new hit series, R&B Divas and The Rickey Smiley Show,” Liggins said. “I and the Radio One family thank her for her leadership and guidance and wish her well in her next endeavor.”
Lucas said: “It has been my pleasure to have had the opportunity to be a part of TV One and work with Alfred Liggins, Cathy Hughes and the TV One staff. I am extremely proud of what has been accomplished during my time with the network and am confident that the senior team under Alfred’s leadership will continue to thrive and succeed.”
Launched in January 2004, TV One serves more than 57 million households, offering a broad range of real-life and entertainment-focused original programming, classic series, movies and music designed to entertain, inform and inspire a diverse audience of adult black viewers.
