I just heard today that Viacom has purchased BET holdings that own the cable channel among other things. I think that this is going to be a great acquisition for them. They are the premier Black entertainment channel and I agree with the CEO that there's lots of growth potential.

I also saw the CEO talking on CNBC, he seems like a cool old man. He said he wants to buy CNBC. Who knows?

Can anyone tell me why they have two ticker symbols?
