Roma Khanna, CEO of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ REVOLT TV, is stepping down from her role at the cable network after nearly three years on the job. Going forward, she will serve as an advisor to REVOLT TV’s senior team and shareholders.
With Khanna departing, REVOLT TV executive vp and head of finance & operations Colin McIntosh and COO and head of content Detavio Samuels will step in as co-heads, taking over day-to-day leadership of the company. Both will report to Combs Enterprises COO Tarik Brooks.
Named CEO in September 2017, Khanna has launched such programing as State of the Culture and REVOLT Black News, in addition to the multi-city, multi-platform REVOLT Summit x AT&T. Under her tenure, REVOLT has also grown its distribution with packages across AT&T platforms, Mediacom and OTT outlets such as Sling and Philo. Additionally, the Revolt.tv website has seen unique visitors and page views increase by over 1,000%, while its official YouTube channel has increased views by 450%, according to the company.
“REVOLT’s time is now and I am very proud to pass the reins to our next generation of amazing leaders as they rise and guide the future,” said Khanna in a release. “I am grateful to our Chairman, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, for his unwavering support and guidance along the way. REVOLT is forever in my heart and I look forward to continuing to support the team, our audience and Sean Combs as an ally and Advisor.”
Combs added, “I am grateful for Roma’s relentless work over the last three years getting REVOLT ready for the revolution. She has been an ally to the culture and the company. Roma will always be a part of the Combs family and I am happy to have her as an Advisor to REVOLT going forward.”
