Exclusive: Roland Martin Believes He Can Change The Center Of Black Thought In America
American renowned journalist Roland Martin is set to anchor TV One’s new morning show News One Now and HipHollywood has all the deets on what viewers can expect.
During Roland’s annual Hollywood soiree on Wednesday night, the anchor dished on how News One Now is going to become the center of Black thought in America.
“It is important for us to do it on a Black platform, to where our stories are not secondary, not pushed to the side,” the 44-year-old shared.
Roland, who was just honored as “Journalist Of The Year” by the National Association Of Black Journalists, shared that the daily show is a way for the Black community to have a conversation.
“Political stuff, social, cultural, entertainment, you name it … If we are talking about economics, we are talking about economics and how it relates to African Americans. We are talking about Black women starting businesses at a faster rate that everyone else,” Roland dished.
News One Now is set to launch in September.
