Magic Johnson Starting Cable Channel
LOS ANGELES, CA. (CNN) – Earvin “Magic” Johnson isn’t just a hall-of-fame basketball legend. He’s also a successful businessman who’s developed an empire of movie theaters, fitness centers, and owns a stake in the Los Angeles dodgers. And now — he’s looking to become a media mogul.
Johnson is launching a new basic cable network today. It’s called “Aspire,” and it will highlight the positive achievements of the African-American community. The family-friendly programming will feature movies, music and comedy.
