Pro skateboarder, Tony Hawk is one of the people being mentioned as having his own YouTube channel. YouTube is nearly ready to launch its channels initiative, or so the rumor goes. CSI creator, Anthony Zuliker has also been mentioned along with channels by Electus (Chopped, Spike TV, Mob Wives), Shine Reveille (The Office, Biggest Loser, Ugly Betty). The Wall Street Journal sites unnamed sources saying that the project will be officially unveiled next week. We’ve been hearing that these YouTube channels are “just around the corner” for a long time now. For the moment, we’ll file it with killer bees as things that are perpetually on their way but never quite arriving. You know, like the popularity of Google Wave.
