Renowned journalist Roland Martin has been added to the recently launched Black Information Network.
Martin will join the BIN as a commentator and will curate commentary segments for the 24-hour Black news feed. The commentaries will highlight conversations, perspectives, and topics that are on the mind of the African-American audience. Those topics will include, politics, economics, lifestyle, and more.
“When we launched BIN: Black Information Network, we knew how extremely important it was to provide a forum for trusted voices within the Black Community and there’s perhaps no one more trusted and reliable in Black media today than Roland Martin,” said Tanita Myers, Director of News Operations for BIN: Black Information Network. “He has built a legacy that has paved the way for other Black journalists and continues to use his platform to bring a much needed perspective on topics that matter to both Black Americans and the nation in general.”
In addition, Martin’s #RolandMartinUnfiltered podcast will join the iHeartPodcast network. The podcast is a daily show that is based in Washington, DC, and focuses on news, politics, culture, entertainment, social justice, sports, education, business, and finance.
“I am excited to provide daily commentaries to BIN. We are living in a time where we need more coverage about the issues facing African Americans,” said Martin. “In addition, I am really thrilled to partner with the iHeartPodcast Network to distribute and market the ‘#RolandMartinUnfiltered’ audio podcast. We have seen tremendous growth with the daily video show, and we can’t wait to do the same with the audio podcast.”
