Former CNN Anchor TJ Holmes Looks For Next Step After BET Flop

Former CNN anchor TJ Holmes, who left the channel at the end of 2011 to launch a late night news/comedy hybrid show on BET, is back on the job market, now that BET has formally canceled the program. Holmes filled in on MSNBC in December.

Holmes talked to The Root’s Richard Prince about the departure:

“I will never, ever regret
 thinking that my heart was in the right place,” a young black man 
taking his skills “to do something that was not being done for our 
community,” that is, providing a daily news show geared toward 
African Americans. “You learn from the mistakes, there are questions I 
should have asked, things that should have been cleared up,” but 
reaching the black community in that way was “an opportunity I would 
love to have” again, Holmes said.
