Roma Khanna Named CEO of Revolt Media & TV


Roma Khanna, formerly the president of MGM Studios, has been tapped as the new CEO of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Revolt Media and TV.

Khanna will lead the continued growth of Revolt as a multiplatform content creator and brand. Building on the core platform of Revolt TV, Revolt will look to expand its presence across multiple platforms globally and produce and distribute world-class short- and long-form content under the Revolt brand. Revolt will build on its successful position in music to become a premier destination and brand on traditional and emerging platforms for hip-hop music, stories, content and culture. Khanna will report to the board of directors and Combs. She will be based out of Los Angeles.

Prior to MGM, Khanna served as the president of NBCUniversal’s international networks and digital initiatives, where she oversaw NBCU’s global cable entertainment channel portfolio.

“After decades of building large-scale businesses in TV and media, I am excited to have the opportunity to work alongside visionary Sean Combs to get hands-on and redefine content models with a view to building a modern, relevant, global cultural brand,” said Khanna. “Revolt is ready to create and curate content and super-serve its audience on its own TV platform and beyond, living and breathing with its audience wherever they might be.”
