Sean "Diddy" Combs to Lead a 'Revolt'

We all know that Sean "Diddy" Combs "can't stop and won't stop," and so far he's holding true to his word. The music, fashion, and media mogul will add one more thing to his many hats: network owner. Yep, our favorite "bad boy" will join the ranks of Oprah's OWN with his new cable channel, Revolt

Scheduled to air in 2013, the Comcast-distributed network will reportedly feature music and pop culture programming with a heavy social media influence.

"Revolt is the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media. We’re building this platform for artists to reach an extraordinary number of people in a completely different way. Revolt will be live, like all great moments in television history," Diddy said in a statement. 

In addition to Diddy's new television venture, Magic Johnson and Tyler Perry are reportedly also in the works on their own networks too. Stay tuned.

Will you tune in to Revolt? Do you watch OWN?

Diddy getting money.

All this time and I've yet to watch OWN Network. I honestly don't know what channel she's on. I'm sure that eventually I will get around to watching both networks though.

@Don - I'm a huge Oprah fan and I STILL can never remember the channel for OWN. LOL

Diddy is a true entrepreneur and mogul.

I like OWN well enough. There's some interesting programming on there I hadn't seen before or shows I had watched before but episodes I might have missed since I just recently got a DVR.

I hope Diddy observes and learns from Oprah and starts out with more of a balance between new and reused programming. It can't be mostly reused programming or people will lose interest quickly.
