Revolt’s the channel, they’re the DJ’s. Earlier today (August 28th) it was announced that Sean Combs’ REVOLT TV has acquired exclusive television rights to the third annual Global Spin Awards.
Created by Bad Boy Records exce Shawn Prez, the Global Spin Awards celebrates the DJ with a night of performances, awards and speeches. In a press release regarding the REVOLT TV partnership, Prez:
I couldn’t be happier to have one of the biggest names in music television, REVOLT TV, be the exclusive broadcast partner of the 3rd Annual Global Spin Awards. The REVOLT name and fan base will continue to help us grow and celebrate the DJ community. Together we can help the industry underdogs get the recognition they deserve.
At last year’s Global Spin Awards hosted by Sway Calloway, DJ Kid Capri was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, Funkmaster Flex was awarded the National Mix Show DJ of the Year and DJ Mustard was deemed the Producer of the Year. There is no word on who the nominees will be and who will host this year’s award ceremony.
The third annual Global Spin Awards is set to air on REVOLT TV on November 18th, 2014 in New York City. The REVOLT TV broadcast will air the following week.
