Perhaps taking a page from Oprah’s notebook, Sean “Diddy” Combs is reportedly
in the midst of creating his own music-themed cable channel. He plans to call it Revolt, and insiders say it’ll hit the airwaves on 12/12/12. The entertainment mogul, who has his own alcohol
lines, is certainly no stranger to new business enterprises — and he’s even more familiar with music television.
His rise to success in the ’90s is largely attributed to a number of dynamic, award-winning music videos, as well as his appearance on several seasons of MTV’s reality series Making The Band in the early 2000s.
Speaking of MTV, the “Looking For Love” rapper has allegedly pulled a few former Viacom employees onto the project, which B&C says will be like a more “urban”-leaning version of that channel’s early years. Does that mean they’ll actually play music videos?!
Mr. Combs has certainly been successful in other industries, but do you think he has what it takes to helm an entire TV network? Sound off in the comments below, or on Twitter and Facebook.
