A new music and entertainment cable channel is launching.
Business entertainment reporter Joe Flint says concert promoter AEG is teaming up with Ryan Seacrest, Mark Cuban and Creative Artists Agency to start AXS, a pop culture and music cable channel that is expected to debut in June.
The channel will specialize in live programming, especially music and concert coverage. Los Angeles-based AEG’s downtown L.A. Live complex will serve as the network’s on-air home.
Seacrest won't be an on-air personality, Joe Flint says in his story today, but his production company will be involved.
