This fall, TV One will launch a daily morning show devoted to the most pressing African American news topics of the day. Co-produced and hosted by former CNN contributor Roland Martin, “NewsOne Now” will air from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.

TV One will syndicate the program on Radio One stations nationally and simulcast the last hour of the three-hour radio program on its cable channel. It’s a move Chairman of TV One and CEO and President of Radio One Alfred Liggins believes will help bolster Radio One’s presence in the hard news arena.

“This is a further evolution of TV One’s commitment to better and more important television for African-Americans, and is also an extension of Radio One’s history and philosophy of making sure we inform, entertain and advocate for the African-American community,” Liggins said. “This is the first time a network has approached African-American news on this type of commitment level.”

Though no luanch date has been set, TV One officials said it would likely debut mid-September before the annual legislative conference of the Congressional Black Caucus.
