D.C.’s loss is New York City’s gain. The Black Snob, a.k.a Danielle Belton, is moving to Manhattan to work as a writer and blogger on T.J. Holmes’ new show on BET. The new program, Don’t Sleep, is a black, cultural-themed news show.
“For those of you playing at home, I worked on the pilot last winter and many, many moons ago used to pretend to stalk T.J. for poops n’ grins on the Internet,” Belton wrote on her blog. “Life is incredibly funny in how a guy I started writing about during this blog’s beginnings in 2008 is the same guy I wound up working for in my first scripted TV writing gig.”
The show premiers in October. Aside from script and blogger duties, Belton says we may find her as a panelist. But please, ignore those promos! “I’m already (silently) featured in the show’s promos, but I hate those promos because I’m wearing the sweater of doom and I’m about 25 lbs heavier than I am now,” she writes.
Best wishes to Belton, and congratulations to her on her new gig!
