*Journalist Roland S. Martin will launch #RolandMartinUnfiltered, a daily digital show 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, beginning Tuesday, September 4, 2018.
The daily digital show will be “powered by the people” and will incorporate real-time interactions and commentary from viewers as Martin reports on news and current events that are important to people of color, including politics, social justice, sports, education, business, finance, entertainment and pop culture.
The 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.
“#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.”
