Stephen Hill and Zola Mashariki
*OK, what’s going on over at BET? That’s the question folks are asking because Stephen Hill, BET’s Programming president and Zola Mashariki, head of Original Programming are leaving the cable channel.
We hear Connie Orlando, senior vice president for Specials, Music Programming, and News, will take over as the interim head of Programming for BET Networks.
So far as we can tell, Hill decided to step down, but the powers that be at the network, owned by Viacom, is n ot saying what the deal is with Mashariki departure.
