dr. bobby jonesOur friend – BET publicist, Zabrina Horton – sent a note to remind us that today, a special member of the BET Family is celebrating a major milestone:

Please join me in wishing Dr. Bobby Jones, the Ambassador of Gospel, a very Happy 75th Birthday!

Dr. Jones has been with BET from the beginning. The first hosted show we ever broadcast was “Bobby Jones Gospel.” And now,  Dr. Jones has the very special distinction of hosting the longest running music show in cable history!

For 33 years, our audience, our families and our friends have spent Sunday mornings enjoying that unique ‘Dr. Jones approved’ blend of praise, worship and THE best gospel music anywhere.

To Dr. Bobby Jones, a true television pioneer and Gospel legend – Happy Birthday!

So let’s do this: Let’s get the word out about our love for Dr. Jones. Please tweet, Facebook and/or Instagram a birthday message to Dr. Jones and include the hashtag #BETBobbyJones75… and encourage others to do the same. Let’s make sure the world knows our love for the good Dr.!

Much Appreciated!

No prob Zabrina. We agree. Dr. Jones’ long, history making tenure on BET and on cable as well as his other accomplishments and his birthday, should be recognized and celebrated.

Happy birthday, Dr. Bobby Jones!
