Ryan Seacrest, radio personality and host of American Idol, is interested in purchasing VH1 Soul network. The creator of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” has decided to snap up one of the only music channels that still plays only music. With it being pulled out of a number of major markets, the network looks to be in peril. The plan is to purchase the network and rebrand it, but not the same way Oprah purchased Discovery Health and turned it into the OWN Network, Seacrest saying, “It will not be branded with my name or my face, which many people will be happy about.”
Once the plan goes through, will the channel still play Jill Scott and Dwele? Ain’t nothing like neo-soul at 3 in the morning…
What do you think?
