TV One and CLEO TV General Manager Michelle Rice was honored with the Lew Klein Alumni in Media Award by Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communication during a luncheon ceremony held October 4 in Philadelphia.

Reflecting on the award, Rice said “I am deeply humbled to receive this honor from my alma mater Temple University and to be a benefactor of Lew Klein’s legacy of generosity, mentorship and advocacy.”

Named in honor of the late broadcasting pioneer Lew Klein, the Alumni in Media Awards pay tribute to both Klein’s influential career and to his 67 years of teaching at Temple. The luncheon recognized the professional achievements of alumni working in the media and communications industries. This year’s honorees included The Miami Herald’s Julie K. Brown, Google’s John Zissimos and CNN’s Jake Tapper, who was honored with the Excellence in Media Award.

Rice, a 15-year veteran of TV One, was named General Manager in 2018 and has been responsible for the launch of two hit series UNCENSORED and ATL HOMICIDE. Most recently, she shepherded the development of TV One’s new sister network, CLEO TV, an aspirational lifestyle and entertainment TV network serving Millennial and Gen X women of color that launched in January 2019. Prior to joining TV One, Rice held roles at iNDemand, NBC Cable Network and Black Entertainment Television (BET).
