Magic Johnson Promises to Fill Black TV Void

Magic Johnson Promises to Fill Black TV Void.

 “When Comcast took a majority stake in NBC Universal, the cable giant promised to launch 10 minority-owned independent networks over a period of eight years. Making good on that commitment, it has announced that at least two will have big name African Americans at their helms, with Sean “Diddy” Combs and Earvin “Magic” Johnson on board as majority owners of unique new channels.

Diddy’s Revolt Network, coming in 2013, will be all about music and pop culture — in his words, “We’re gonna be like the CNN or ESPN of music.” And Johnson’s Aspire promises positive programming for black families beginning in summer 2012.  Both celebs say they plan to fill gaps in programming, and more — they’ll create opportunities for African Americans in front of the camera and behind the scenes.”
