Bishop T.D. Jakes to Host Talk Show on BET

(April 10, 2013)  Bishop T.D. Jakes will host his own talk show on BET beginning this fall. Jakes' new show, called "T.D. Jakes Presents: Mind, Body & Soul" is part of the network's move toward more faith-based programming. According to BET Networks, Jakes' show will offer "better talk," and will deal with issues like finance, relationships and health and wellness. The talk show is tied to BET Gospel programming that includes shows like "Celebration of Gospel," "Sunday Best" and "Bobby Jones Gospel." The network already airs Jakes' ministry program, "The Potter's Touch," which reaches 67 million households every month through various outlets. BET Senior Vice President of original programming Charlie Jordan Brooks said in September 2012 that the network, which caters to African-American viewers, was "trying to bring [spiritual themes] into the fabric of our programming in general." Jakes' talk show will air on Sundays.
