Ice Cube and LL Cool J Are In Negotiations To Purchase 22 Sports Stations

Ice Cube and LL Cool J are ready to start their own sports network.

Cube and Mr. Smith are apart of a group with billionaire Carolyn Rafaelian that are trying to bid for the sports stations Disney has to sell off from their Fox deal.

According to TMZ Sports, Disney got the 22 stations as part of its $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox. But, officials believe that since Disney is already the majority owner of ESPN, controlling the 22 sports stations would give them too much power in the sports TV landscape.

The 22 stations involved in the deal include everything from Fox Sports San Diego to Fox Sports Arizona, Fox Sports Detroit, Fox Sports Southwest and more.

Other potential bidders include private equity firms Apollo Global Management, Blackstone Group and he Sinclair Broadcast Group.
