TV One Gives Roland a Shot

African-American entertainment provider, TV One announced yesterday (7/6) that TV One political editor, CNN analyst and ESSENCE columnist Roland Martin will be in the driver's seat for his own one hour news program this fall. Slated to touch on all areas of politics from a distinctly African-American perspective, the hour series, tentatively entitled Washington Watch with Roland Martin, is slated to debut Sunday, Sept. 27 and will air weekly at 11 AM and 5 PM ET. TV One anticipates the show having a strong interactive focus and a variety of panelists and guests that will range from journalists to experts.

I am happy for Roland Martin. I think that he is a great representation for Black people in his key presence on CNN and I believe that this new show will be another vehicle for his prominence as a black thought leader to grow.
