Well, I just got word from a former Intern at VH1Soul. And I say former, because as of now, she is going to lose her job. Shoot. A couple of us are going to lose jobs… or Credit Producing Internships. No official date on it as of yet, but shortly, VH1Soul will be ending all programming, and permanently going OFF the air. Forever. Yes. Quite frankly, this sucks donkey balls. For several reasons.
1. It’s always tough to see the loss of jobs. Especially Music Related Jobs.
2. For the video music nerd, and any soul music lover, this is one of the last avenues where you can get great Soul music of all varieties… Live, Recorded, documentaries…. and our alternative to the limited mainstream channels of “Soul Music” we now have available to us.
As of right now, there are plans to rally and appeal to VH1 to keep the channel. As soon as I get word on what will be done and how you can help, I’ll let you know. But spread the word. And if you love good music… help us out.
