Award-winning journalist, author, TV host and multimedia entrepreneur Roland S. Martin will launch #RolandMartinUnfiltered, a daily digital show, on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 at 6:00pm ET. The show will report on news and current events that are important to people of color, covering a wide range of topics including politics, social justice, sports, education, business, finance, entertainment and pop culture.
“#RolandMartinUnfiltered is an independent news source that will address many of the top stories today that are largely ignored by mainstream media,” said Martin who will produce the show through his company, Nu Vision Media, Inc. “In my career, I have focused on many of these issues: voter suppression, HBCUs, the increasing wealth gap in America, and we will continue to do so in an unapologetic and unfiltered way.”
#RolandMartinUnfiltered is set to be a truly digital experience that will stream live daily on Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and Instagram TV, and will be available on-demand on a multitude of digital platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Firestick, Google Chromecast and more. The daily digital show will be “powered by the people” and will incorporate real-time interactions and commentary from the viewers.
The digital show format will feature in-depth discussions and one-on-one interviews with authors, artists, athletes, entertainment personalities, and other top names in education, public policy, and academia. In addition, #RolandMartinUnfiltered will hit the road and stream live events across the country, such as speeches, summits, conferences, town halls, and staple entertainment events.
Says Martin about his new show, “Now is the time for us to speak truth to power. Now is the time for us to control our narrative and have a voice that represents our interests and concerns. Now is the time to fight against fake news and the folks who wish to do our community harm,” said Martin. “Let’s mark a new chapter for an independent news source that, in the words of the late, great Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, is unbought and unbossed!”
