Tapp is moving further to the political right as Herman Cain joins Sarah Palin on the celebrity-focused digital video network. Cain’s new channel, which launched October 6, goes by the name The Herman Cain Channel and can be found at HermanCainChannel.com.
In the channel’s trailer, Cain assures potential viewers, “Yes, I do get passionate sometimes,” inviting them to subscribe to the channel for $9.99 a month (or about $100 for a full year). Tapp also offers a weeklong free trial, so if you don’t like listening to Cain’s take on the news after that, you can opt away from a subscription.
Cain himself serves as the channel’s executive editor, curating content that will include interviews and video chats that give subscribers the chance to interact live with Cain and his guests. The Georgian Tea Party politician and former Republican presidential candidate also has a radio show syndicated through Westwood One, which will provide further material for Cain’s Tapp channel.
Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein founded Tapp, both of whom cite Cain as an appropriate candidate for a channel on the network due to his “passionate following,” as Gaspin described.
