This news right here was DEVASTATING to the culture! It was devastating to hear period!According to reports, the cancellation comes as budget cuts are here and this was included. Roland released the news via Twitter.
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. #BringTheFunk— rolandsmartin (@rolandsmartin) December 7, 2017
Roland even expressed that non black employees were moved to tears because of all they learned about Black America through this show. One thing I know for sure, Roland will still be heard and I can’t wait to hear how!
