Fox News contributor Sarah Palin is launching a digital video channel on Tapp, the service founded by former CNN president Jon Klein and former NBC entertainment chairman Jeff Gaspin, Capital New York’s Alex Weprin scoops:
Palin’s channel will feature video commentaries from the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, discussing current events and political issues. “Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” the source said.
That said, Rogue is also expected to feature footage of Palin and her family in Alaska, much as the 2010 TLC reality series, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” did. (TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications, is an investor in Tapp.)
It will also have advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes. There are also tentative plans to have subscribers engage in regular video chats with Palin.
Gaspin told Bloomberg TV Tapp would feature “personality based” channels “with people who have super fans.” Palin’s channel, tentatively titled “Rogue TV,” is expected to be one of the first to launch on the service this spring.
