Diddy Reportedly Puts in Bid for Fuse
If Sean “Diddy” Combs has his way, Fuse TV may soon become Revolt TV.
According to Bloomberg, the media mogul formerly known as Puff Daddy is reportedly bidding $200 million for the music cable channel. If he wins, Combs would change Fuse to Revolt, which would result in a “wider distribution and higher subscriber fees.”
Currently, Fuse is available in about 78 million homes through three cable providers, while Revolt is only available to 22.8 million homes through two cable providers, according to researcher SNL Kagan.
Last month, Kenny Burns of Revolt TV told JET the new network’s approach to music:
“What we think is hot, we air. We have meetings full of young people that give us the energy that fuels the station and the chairman, Puff, his whole thing is for the people and by the people. And he’s a creative, so he doesn’t have limits, doesn’t have rules so what he says he wants to do he does. And he’s put a team of executives together, along with myself, to create this amazing station.”
