Unfortunately, TVOne has cancelled Roland Martin’s Daily News show, NewsOne Now. It is one of the only programs geared toward disseminating news and current events to the African American demographic.

According to TheJasmineBrand, Roland Martin responded to the cancellation by saying, “Fam, the sad news is true. The staff of @tvonetv #NewsOneNow 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. Our last live show will be Dec. 21.

The emails, text messages, phone calls, Facebook and Twitter posts have been amazing. Your love for our work on @tvonetv #NewsOneNow is warming my heart and that of my staff. To read these amazing comments about how much the show meant to you is unbelievable. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”
