TV FAB: Sean "Diddy" Combs PLANNING To Launch Music-Themed Cable Network "REVOLT"?

Sean "Diddy" Combs will soon be swimming in the same shark waters as Oprah (OWN) and Cathy Hughes (TV ONE) when he launches "Revolt" a music-themed cable network at the end of the year. Deets inside.....

Though details are very hush hush, insides sources are reporting that on 12/12/12 Sean "Diddy" Combs will launch Revolt, a music-themed cable network.  

The network is being described as "the old MTV" and will be geared toward African Americans. 

And Diddy didn't have to reach too far into his pockets, as sources say the venture is well funded and will be distributed Comcast And Time Warner Cable.  No word on who the other major investors are yet.

In other black network news, Charles Barkley (co-founder) will launch Kin TV in the spring around the same time as Soul of the South.  Also, James Brown, of CBS Sports, was recently named managing director at Black Heritage Network.

Work.

He has to put a lot work into

He has to put a lot work into that; that's not an overnight job. If he promotes to much of himself that's going to turn away a lot of people. You have to cater to young and old. He has to label an episode for the young and mood time for the old. Basically, black folks is hard to please. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Didn't YouTube kill the MTV,

Didn't YouTube kill the MTV, VH1, BET? Let's be honest, if people want to see a music video you can Google/YouTube it before watching it on TV.

True or Vemo. But that medium

True or Vemo. But that medium is so sterile. No life. Remember when watching Music on Television was an event? Video premiers, artist interviews, live performances.... I hope this works out.

I doubt it will. And although

I doubt it will. And although I could never knock someone's hustle, I can't stand Diddy. He's good a starting projects but horrible at making them last. Hopefully he isn't the sole decision maker in this process.

I wonder who lettin Diddy get

I wonder who lettin Diddy get in 'cause Bob Johnson been trying to get (back) a channel for years now. If he calling it the old MTV I bet you Viacom is funding it. Especially since BJ sold viacom the entire black music library !! I wish we had independently owned black channels on cable, but "the man" just ain't gone let it happen. But Good Luck to Diddy and who ever else can get in. We need more channels.
