Roland Martin to Host New Morning Show

Roland Martin

A day after TV One announced that Roland Martin would host a new daily morning show on its network, Journal-isms asked Martin, "What have the stories about your new show failed to mention?"

Martin replied by email: "That no other Black network has taken on such an ambitious project to launch a show in the competitive morning space.

"All of them also ignore the reality of Blacks and social media, and by having a show that will be a three-screen show — TV, terrestrial radio and online — very few in the space today are doing that.

"Lastly, the diversity of guests in the morning space" is "about to be ramped up dramatically."
