Herb Wilkins, Sr., Founder and Managing Partner of Syndicated Communications Inc., was a pioneer in business and venture capital

Bethesda, MD (BlackNews.com) – “I want to express my condolences, along with The RLJ Companies, to Herb Wilkins’s wife Sharon and his family on the loss of the smartest and one of the most respected and influential African American business leaders I have had the good fortune to know.

“Herb was one of my best friends and a business mentor who guided me on the creation of Black Entertainment Television (BET) and District Cablevision, the first cable system in Washington, DC. For his advice on all of my business deals, I owe a great deal of thanks for his contribution to my success.

“Herb was also instrumental in creating wealth for many African American business men and women. While he will be missed greatly by all, his legacy will remain in our memories forever.”


Robert L. Johnson is founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET) and founder and chairman of The RLJ Companies.
