Robin Thede, a graduate of Davenport North and alumna of Buchanan Elementary and Williams Intermediate, will host her own late-night talk show co-produced by comedian Chris Rock. “The Rundown with Robin Thede,” described as a 30-minute news satire series, will appear on the BET network beginning in October. Robin is no stranger to television or comedy, with an on-screen resume including The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, E! News, and the Teen Choice Awards, and she also has been a Head Writer on several projects, including Wilmore’s 2016 White House Correspondents Association Dinner appearance.
