BET Awards to Honor Tom Joyner


Since the 1990’s, philanthropist Tom Joyner has been the well-known and loved radio host of The Tom Joyner Show which pulls in over 8 million ears across the nation. In 19989, as an homage to his roots, he created the Tom Joyner Foundation whose mission is to earmark dollars for students and schools that have run out of money and has raised more than $60 million to help keep students in historically black colleges and universities. The Foundation, just like the morning show and his other endeavors, exists to serve the African American community.
Hosted by Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, the “BET Awards” will include performances by Chris Brown and Kendrick Lamar. The star power continues as Michael B. Jordan and entertainer Zendaya will take the stage as presenters during the 15th anniversary of the annual highly-anticipated televised event. Additional names to be announced.
