TV One announced today that its new Roland S. Martin-hosted news program, News One Now, will premiere on the network on Monday, November 4, 2013, at 9am.

The morning news program will see Martin... sifting through the headlines of the day to spotlight matters that greatly impact the African American community. 

The hour-long daytime TV program will include both digital and broadcast content, creating what should be an interactive, immersive experience. 

Expect reporting on the news headlines of the day, plus interviews, panel discussions, social media integration, as well as what the press release dubs more obscure stories that touch the African American audience nationwide.

In addition to the TV broadcast, News One Now will be streamed live on Radio One

Here's the breakdown:

Each weekday morning, News One Now will kick off via its radio platform at 7AM/ET, airing on Radio One network stations in select U.S. markets. Entering its third hour at 9AM/ET, the radio program will simulcast on its TV One television platform, which will be broadcast from the heart of Washington D.C. from a state-of-the-art studio that offers a stunning view of the Capitol building. Audiences can continue their experience 24/7 with exclusive program content and extended editorial on NewsOne.com and the NewsOne mobile app available in both iOS and Android. Social interaction is at the heart of the show and incorporates conversations from facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Vine, among others, using the hash tag #NewsOneNow.

"Filling a glaring gap in the current cable news programming landscape, News One Now builds off our success online. News One Now extends our presence to a complete multi-platform erpereince where we can serve the African American audience with news and analysis that is specially curated to suit their needs, concerns, interests and passions," said Alfred Liggins, chairman of TV One and CEO and president of Radio One.

"Our program will not only keep Black America abreast of major breaking news and hot-button issues, it will also shed light on peripheral stories that spotlight events and individuals making a concentrated, positive impact in our communities," said Martin. "Our audience can not only expect to be informed, but also enlightened and inspired."

TV One has also signed an agreement with Martin's media company, Nu Vision Media, Inc, in addition to the launch of News One Now.

For TV One, Donna Wilson is executive producer and Craig Henry is executive in charge of production.
