There's a rumor going around that VH1 Soul is on the brink of extinction. The blogs are abuzz with it- claiming that a merger that's been long in the works between Centric (BET/MTV) and VH1 is the reason behind the threat.

Well, there's Soul School to show you the way with old school soul and R&B videos.

This means that television doesn't air any shows centered on soul music, in fact VH1 Soul is it.
Good news! There's a petition going around Save VH1 Soul and they only need 500 signatures. They're about 43 away from their goal. You can also follow them at @SaveVH1Soul on Twitter for updates and informtion.
