News One Now host Roland Martin issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday that read:
“Fam, the sad news is true. The staff of @tvonetv #NewsnewOneNow 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.”
Martin added that the last episode of the show would air on December 21st. TvOne issued a statement via Twitter:
“We 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.”
The Tweet didn’t specify if Martin would be getting a new show, or if “continue to support” means bringing Martin on as a guest on someone else’s show. Either way, I’m pretty sure that Roland Martin is going to be just fine. Roland Martin has almost half a million Twitter followers and over 100,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel. With a loyal following supporting him, the sky is the limit for Roland Martin. I’m sure it won’t be too long before you see him on your tv screen again.
