Roland Martin’s New Gig

By//Najja Parker

Congratulations are in order.  Roland Martin just got a new gig!

TV One has announced the creation of “News One Now,” a live one-hour, weekday morning news program slated to premiere September 2013. The show, hosted by Martin, will provide viewers with a morning news program that will offer news and analysis of politics, entertainment, and sports and culture from an African American perspective for the first time in history.

Based in Washington D.C., the morning show will feature experts, newsmakers and celebrities who will share their insights with Martin.

But that’s not all!

The show will also implement a “Skype Net,” where Radio One hosts can provide daily weigh-ins on “News One Now” content and inform the audience on hot topics in their respective regions.

“News One Now” will be a three-screen experience that will allow viewers to tune into the show on television, the radio and web. Be sure to use the hash tag #NewsOneNow when tuning into the show this fall.
