Revolt TV Launches Podcast Network featuring Yung Miami and Many Others Available on Your Favorite Streaming Platform

Revolt – the music-focused television network founded by Sean "Diddy" Combs and radio and record industry veteran Andy Schuon nearly a decade ago – is looking to carve out a piece of audio listening too. It has just launched the Revolt Podcast Network with a lineup of 20 shows that it says will prioritize content geared toward African American listeners.

“Everything Revolt does is with the culture in mind, and we’re excited to bring impactful new content with the Revolt Podcast Network,” said Detavio Samuels, CEO of Revolt. “Tapping into news, comedy, sports, business, entrepreneurship, among other topics, the Revolt Podcast Network is a leading example of our commitment to creating entertaining and educational content while uplifting Black voices.”

The lineup of shows will cover a wide spectrum of content, with the importance of catering to Black listeners and focusing on Black culture an underlying theme across the podcasts in the portfolio.

Aki Garrett, VP of Business Development and GM at Revolt, says the new network will launch with a mix of new shows as well as existing podcasts that they believe will benefit from the Revolt’s ability to promote them using the “cultural authority and megaphone” that Revolt has created.

“There is significant demand from Black podcast listeners for more authentic, entertaining and empowering content highlighting Black culture,” said Garrett. “I am thrilled to officially launch Revolt Podcast Network, which will become the go-to podcast destination for Black culture.”

One such podcast making the move is Stacy Ike’s Human2Human Podcast launched in Feb. 2021. Ike was the very first live show host on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and her podcast features interviews with guests.

“Revolt is a cultural staple in the community and joining the podcast network was in alignment with my passion to enrich the ‘human2human’ experience,” said Ike in a statement. “Human2Human invites vulnerability into every conversation, and I wanted that to be celebrated amongst people in every walk of life, which is where Revolt Podcast Network and I align. I look forward to being at the helm of encouraging people to stay curious about their world and creating lasting impact that enlightens our community towards their highest selves within their relationships, careers, and personal lives.”

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
