Roland Martin Launches Digital Show

Just six months after TV One suspended production on Roland Martin’s daily morning news program News One Now, the longtime TV commentator is back with a digital show. RolandMartinUnfiltered.com goes live on September 4th. Martin describes the show as “giving a voice to the voiceless and speaking truth to power on the issues of the day.” The show will be broadcast live from DC and will focus on news, politics, culture, sports, entertainment, education, business, and finance. Martin said the show will also broadcast from towns across the country “to hear from people and not just what the DC pundits have to say,” Martin said. He went on to say that he’s in discussion with some TV stations who have expressed airing the show in local markets. The theme song for the show was recorded by Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron, members of the singing group, En Vogue. Martin talks more about the show here.
