roland martin vs jason whitlock

*This should be pretty interesting. We’re talking about a duel of between two extremely opinonated journalists and talk show hosts. So, be sure to tune in as Roland S. Martin hosts ‘The Great Debate‘ VS. sports journalist and host of “Speak For Yourself” on Fox Sports FS1, Jason Whitlock. The two top journalists will debate topics such as Colin Kaepernick, Lebron James, Black Lives Matter, and more on #RolandMartinUnfiltered LIVE from Los Angeles today, Thursday, October 18 at 3:00PM PST/6:00PM EST.

#RolandMartinUnfiltered garnered an impressive 8.2 Million organic views in it’s first month of streaming. The fully independent news source addresses many of the top stories today that are largely ignored by mainstream media. The show, which airs live daily at 6:00 pm EST, covers a wide range of topics that are important to people of color including voter suppression, HBCUs, the increasing wealth gap in America, and it will continue to do so in an unapologetic and unfiltered way.

Martin expressed his dedication to the new venture by sharing, “I am more than excited about the launch of #RolandMartinUnfiltered and what we’ve been able to do in our first month. For a show that has no major media backing, that has grown organically and is all powered by the people, this proves our audience is craving for news and issues that speaks to their concerns. The marketplace is seriously devoid of the type of show we are producing on a daily basis, and we are committed to building this to an even bigger presence.”

#RolandMartinUnfiltered is a fully digital experience that streams live daily on Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and Instagram TV, and is available on-demand on a multitude of digital platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Firestick, Google Chromecast and more. The daily digital show is “powered by the people” and incorporates real-time interactions and commentary from viewers.

The digital show format features 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 hits the road and streams live events across the country, such as speeches, summits, conferences, town halls, and staple entertainment events.

Martin, who has nearly 2 million social media followers, has always been a pioneer in the digital space. The founding editor of Tom Joyner’s, he launched the first Black news source audio podcast in 2005 and the first Black news video podcast in 2006. He has also launched and written for a variety of other Black and mainstream media websites in his career.

Known for being a ‘tenacious truth seeker’ and ‘relentless journalist,’ Martin hosted TV One Cable Network’s NewsOneNow for four years, where he made history for the first daily morning show to focus on news, politics and current events explicitly from an African American perspective. From 2009 to 2013, he hosted the award-winning TV One Sunday morning news show, Washington Watch. Many of his devoted fans have expressed the importance of having Martin’s candid commentary and representation of people of color back on the air.
