    Roland Martin Debuts New TVOne Show 

    TV One political editor, CNN and Tom Joyner Morning Show analyst Roland Martin will host a new weekly public affairs series on TV One that will focus on issues that are critical to African Americans, through interviews with officials from the Administration, Congress and other policymakers who represent black communities, as well as discussions with journalists and commentators, and a wide range of policy experts.

    Each week Roland Martin and a rotating panel of journalists and experts, including American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent April Ryan and Comcast Network host and Philadelphia Tribune columnist Robert Traynham, will discuss the top stories in Washington. The show will also feature regular appearances by members of the Congressional Black Caucus. In addition, Martin will conduct a one-on-one interview with a key newsmaker each week.

    The hour series, tentatively entitled Washington Watch with Roland Martin, is slated to debut Sunday, Sept. 27 and will air weekly at 11 AM and 5 PM ET. [SOURCE]

    Is CNN Really The Black Network? 

    CNN is sometimes called the black network.

    They have five black anchors, two black White House correspondents, and one black Pentagon correspondent. Those numbers exclude other black correspondents who work on beats as varied as politics, business, and entertainment.

    The network is also working on a highly touted documentary Black In America 2 which will air this July again taking what’s being called an unparalleled look at the black experience in America.

    However as HuffPost notes CNN and MSNBC are both being beat hands down by Fox News.

    Could CNN’s struggles to come up in the ratings be linked to the fact that they don’t have a black presence in their primetime lineup (with the exception of Roland Martin recently filling in for Campbell Brown during her maternity leave)?
