Diddy’s Revolt TV lays off one-third of its staff
by Bri Stubbs
Revolt Media is shrinking its staff in efforts to “reallocate resources and expand the scope of its content production operation,” per Variety. The company is planning to shake things up and bring a, “broader range of long-form and short form content encompassing lifestyle and culture, fashion, art, comedy, and social justice.”
With 50 employees leaving, Revolt is taking its content and work environment in a new direction.
In a statement release to employees, Revolt’s CEO Roma Khanna wrote:
“We will work with more outside voices, producers, and influencers while maintaining a strong editorial core in-house. We will also create a more healthy and stable business base from which we can grow. And we continue our proud record of being over 65% culturally diverse and nearly 50/50 gender balanced.”
According to Variety, Revolt is changing its content to fit more of a Hip-Hop lifestyle brand. The transformation started last October when former MGM TV head Roma Khanna joined the team.
