TV One will cancel Roland Martin’s morning show “News One Now,” the journalist said Wednesday.
“Fam, the sad news is true. The staff of @tvonetv #NewsnewOneNow was informed this afternoon that after four years of doing groundbreaking and award-winning work, the show will cease production at the end of the year,” Martin tweeted.
Martin, who thanked audiences for their support, said the last episode will air on Dec. 21.
Fans of the show, which was expanded to two hours in September, mourned the loss on Twitter.
“You are the reason why I got into politics…when one door closes, another opens…wherever you go, we will follow..#bringonthefunk,” Twitter user @BigBadMeema wrote.
Patria Ann Jenkins wrote, “Roland I am very sorry to hear that I love the show. You brought all the information with a black perspective.”
The network issued a statement on Twitter that read, “We are committed to providing quality news to our viewers and to our long-standing relationship with @rolandsmartin #NewsOneNow who will continue to have a voice on #TVOne.”
