Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson is taking another crack at launching a channel for urban audiences, but the business model he has in mind is based more on the Internet than on television. Johnson's idea is that his new venture would not license or acquire programs but would form partnerships with producers, who could buy blocks of airtime and sell their own advertising for a revenue split.
