Ever since his contract as a CNN contributor ended, Roland Martin has been on the prowl for a new gig and biding his time to announce that TV One will simulcast the last hour of the three-hour News One Now radio show. It will be syndicated on Radio One stations nationwide.

Multichannel News blog reported the news early this morning.

The show is likely to launch in September, but no set date has been announced.

Martin says the program will serve as a nexis of black thought: “When you talk about what’s happening politically, socially, culturally in our communities, this is the place where people will be able to have those discussions.”
