Sean Combs to launch music network in 2013

Sean "P. Diddy" Combs has been a major player in the music industry for years, and now the record label mogul is making moves in the world of TV.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Combs will launch a network called Revolt with Comcast in 2013. The idea is for the channel to be focused on music and news, but with a social media bent.

In a statement, Combs described Revolt as "the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media."

By airing a combination of music videos, news, interviews and live performances, "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," Combs said.

In addition to Revolt, Comcast has teamed up with Magic Johnson to launch a network this summer aimed toward African Americans called Aspire, and is also working with filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to launch another network called El Rey.

Rodriguez's El Rey, to arrive by January 2014, will highlight English language programming that features "Hispanic producers, celebrities and public figures," Entertainment Weekly reports.

Johnson's Aspire, meanwhile, will focus on positive programming and entertainment for the African American community.

    Wait a minute... so is Diddy stealing KarmaloopTV's idea? Check out http://karmalooptv.com or follow on Twitter @karmalooptv.

    You can also see at :54 into this video that Diddy knows about KarmaloopTV and is even supporting it. http://www.karmalooptv.com/2011/09/reclaim-your-tv-celebrity-highlight-reel

    Funny how Diddy claims this is going to be... "the first channel created entirely from the ground up in this new era of social media." I think KarmaloopTV is already there... doing it now.
