Former Alaska governor and failed vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will be launching something called “Rogue TV,” a digital video channel on Tapp, the platform piloted by former CNN executive Jon Klein and former NBC Universal’s Jeff Gaspin. The news comes from Capital New York’s Alex Weprin.
Of what will “Rogue TV” consist? Well, it sounds like an extension of Palin’s work for Fox News channel, where she is a contributor. There’ll be video commentaries on current events and politics, reports Weprin. “Think of it as a video version of her Facebook page,” a source tells him. There’ll also be some Alaska video material.
As the Erik Wemple Blog wrote long ago, Palin is a monster on Facebook, where she tallies some 4 million fans (up from 3.5 million about a year ago). One Facebook post from the fiery conservative, and all of a sudden “Rogue TV” has massive clickdom.
According to Capital, “Rogue TV” will also feature “advice and guidance from Palin, such as tips for parents and recipes.” No mention of regular attacks on the mainstream media, but by now, that probably goes without saying.
