WONYA LUCAS

With the recent retirement of former TV One President and CEO Johnathan Rodgers, the network didn’t take long to find a replacement in the accomplished Wonya Lucas.

Lucas, who comes to TV One from Discovery where she was the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, is tasked with continuing the run of success the network has had in the last seven years.

“Wonya Lucas is the perfect choice to help us build on the terrific success we have achieved at TV One over the past seven years,” said TV One Chairman and Radio One President and CEO Alfred Liggins. “Her successful career as a top-level, mainstream cable programming executive will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow the network and the company. Her expertise in marketing some of the best brands in television will also be a tremendous plus as we continue to define and strengthen TV One’s brand in a constantly evolving media marketplace.”

At Discovery, Lucas she was responsible for strategy and operations for the networks as well as oversight of the networks’ research and marketing departments.

In 2010, Lucas was named among the “75 Most Powerful Women in Business” by Black Enterprise magazine, one of the “50 Most Powerful Women in Cable” by CableFAX magazine and among “The Most Influential Minorities in Cable” by CableFAX. She received similar recognition by CableFAX in 2009, and has been honored as a “Woman To Watch” by Women in Cable and Telecommunications (WICT), received a Brand Builders Award at the 2006 Promax & BDA Conference, recognized as a “Woman To Watch” at the 2005 Multichannel News Wonder Women Awards, and received the Inspiration Award for “Woman of the Year” at the WICT-Atlanta’s 2007 Red Letter Awards. Lucas has served on the Board of Directors of the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing, and she was the co-chairperson for the 2007 CTAM Summit. She also has served as a board member for WICT, Inc and is a graduate of the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute.

Ms. Lucas is a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with an M.B.A. in Finance and Marketing.
