Revolt TV, a multi-platform music cable network led by Sean “Diddy” Combs, has begun to reveal its on-air talent for the channel’s fall launch.
Amrit Singh and Sibley Scoles (also known as Sib Vicious) will be among the network’s TV personalities, in addition to Singh’s higher responsibility as the channel’s music and culture editor.
Singh (@amritsingh) joins the channel from Stereogum, where he served as the music website’s executive editor for seven years. “This opportunity fuses all of my things — law, music, journalism, tv/film — and I’m beyond grateful and honored,” he tweeted Friday (Aug. 16) following the announcement.
Meanwhile, Scoles (@Sib_Vicious), a San Francisco native, is a recording artist and emcee whose music credits include an opening gig with Taio Cruz and studio time with Run-DMC’s DMC.
The addition of Singh and Scoles to the channel’s on-air roster follows the appointments of Keith Clinkscales, Andy Schuon and Val Boreland as Revolt’s CEO, president and executive vice president of programming and strategy, respectively.
Revolt TV is currently scheduled to premiere this October, with distribution deals through Time Warner Cable and Comcast already announced.
