TVOne announced on Wednesday that Roland Martin’s morning new show, News One Now, has been canceled.
Not only were fans shocked, but according to reports, Martin and the team were equally blindsided by the networks decision to put a kibosh on the show. “They called a meeting on Wednesday and told the staff they were canceling the show,” a source told Page Six. “They’re having significant financial problems and they have to scale back.
Roland, who always delivered a strong narrative in support of the Black community, addressed the news late Wednesday with a tweet that read: “Fam, the sad news is true. The staff of @tvonetv #NewsOneNow was informed this afternoon that after four years of doing groundbreaking and award-winning work, the show will cease production at the end of the year.”
Despite the show’s cancellation, however, it sounds like Martin will still be used in some capacity.
The network confirmed that they “are committed to providing quality news to our viewers and to our long-standing relationship with @rolandsmartin #NewsOneNow who will continue to have a voice on #TVOne.”
After four years of being on air, Twitter users are not only disappointed, but many are questioning who is going to have the same strong, visionary, unapologetic voice on national television.
The last live show will be on December 21.
Serena Williams Almost Died During Child Birth – 3 Shocking Details Behind Tennis Pro’s Complications
Serena Williams gave birth to a healthy baby girl on September 1, 2017 and is now a happy mother to a perfect bundle of joy. But what fans didn’t know was that the tennis superstar almost died during child birth.
In an op-ed piece for CNN, the mother of one opened up about complications she had while delivering her first child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Here are three shocking details the athlete is now unveiling.
1. According to Williams, she had an emergency C-section after the baby’s heart rate dropped dramatically during contractions. “It began with a pulmonary embolism, which is a condition in which one or more arteries in the lungs becomes blocked by a blood clot,” Williams wrote. “This sparked a slew of health complications that I am lucky to have survived.”
2. “My C-section wound popped open due to the intense coughing I endured as a result of the embolism. I returned to surgery, where the doctors found a large hematoma, a swelling of clotted blood, in my abdomen. And then I returned to the operating room for a procedure that prevents clots from traveling to my lungs.”
3. When Serena “finally made it home to my family, I had to spend the first six weeks of motherhood in bed.”
In the article posted on CNN’s website, Williams opened up about studies that prove “Black women in the United States are over three times more likely to die from pregnancy or childbirth-related causes.”
