#ROLANDMARTINUNFILTERED | Interview
The award-winning journalist, author, TV host and multimedia entrepreneur Roland S. Martin recently launched #RolandMartinUnfiltered, a daily digital show, in early September. The show, which has garnered over 8.2 million views, reports 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 addresses many of the top stories today that are largely ignored by mainstream media,” said Martin who produces 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 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 the 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.
#RolandMartinUnfiltered streams LIVE daily on Facebook, Youtube, Periscope, and Instagram TV (Monday through Friday at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m.)
