Sean “Diddy” Combs announced that he’s launching a new platform called “Black News” that vows to report news and issues affecting black people. He added that the series will also concentrate on providing solutions.
“It’s time for us to be solution-based,” said the Revolt chairman in an Instagram post on Saturday. He also noted that he will “put together a collective of individuals that are experts in their field.”
Combs explained how he came up with the idea after he hosted “State of Emergency,” an online townhall about the coronavirus and state of black America.
“When I started @REVOLTTV I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, for our people, so I decided to launch #BLACKNEWS,” reads his caption. “This platform is for solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is about what we CAN do. This is all happening in real time, it’s not perfect, but each week we will get better and better.”
