The former television news and communications executive has been featured on nearly every major network—including NBC News, MSNBC, ABC News, BBC, BET News, SkyNews, CNN and HLN—and she has been a guest on programs such as HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, The Dr. Phil Show, The Steve Harvey Show, Tom Joyner Morning Show, and Good Morning America.
