It's official! Diddy is going the Oprah route!
After weeks of speculation, the Bad Boy CEO has announced that he will be launching a music-themed cable network called Revolt TV, which will be distributed by Comcast, and is expected to go live at the end of 2012!
Ch-ch-check out what he has to say (above)!
Wow! This is a huge step!
But frankly, it sounds pretty RAD!
Can't wait to see where this goes!

Earlier today, we mentioned that some fans were pissed because they couldn't get Oprah's new OWN network on their basic cable services.
Looks like there's still plenty of people who ARE getting the network, because OWN's New Years debut was pretty impressive!
During OWN's 12-12:30 p.m. debut, the network scored a 0.7 household rating, which is a 555% gain from the same time slot only four weeks ago, when the channel used to be Discovery Health.
Oprah's ratings were even better with the show Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes, which landed OWN a 1.0 rating in the 8-9 p.m. time slot and a 0.9 rating at 9 p.m. This marks a 500% jump from the same time slot four short weeks ago.
OWN became the third most-watched cable network during the night of Jan 1 in the 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. time slots.
Not a bad way to get things going, Oprah!
Guess we'll see if she can keep it up.
