Sean “Diddy” Combs and his cable venture, REVOLT TV, has been quietly building up its programming. The network landed a big splash after announcing it will be airing a live version of the popular Power 105 The Breakfast Club morning show.
Hosts Angela Yee, DJ Envy, and Charlamagne Tha God have been holding down the airwaves with their nationally syndicated program, but now they’ll be beaming on your television sets in March of 2014. The folks over at Revolt shared their excitement of the pairing in a press release statement.
“Starting our day with The Breakfast Club brings three more hours of live daily programming to REVOLT’s already expansive real-time coverage of music, music news and culture each day,” said Andy Schuon, president and co-founder of REVOLT.
The Breakfast Club, which started in 2010, should work well in the live television format considering all of the hosts have past or current stints on other television networks. The announcement of the show joins REVOLT’s efforts with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment, and the brass over at the channel see big things in the future for the upstart network.
“We are proud of this new partnership with Clear Channel; adding radio as a medium to the REVOLT arsenal will help push the traditional boundaries of music on television and expand our reach even further with millions of new listeners and viewers, which is incredible for a fledgling network,” said REVOLT CEO Keith Clinkscales.
