TV One Names EP for Martin’s New Show

imageTV One, which aims to entertain, inform and inspire black adults, has named TV vet Donna Wilson as the new Executive Producer of his live one-hour, weekday morning news program News One Now. The show will provide a three-screen experience on radio, TV, and online with Roland Martin as host.

“I am excited about Donna coming on board. What really won me over was her energy and passion, despite that she grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan,” Martin told FishbowlDC. “I wont hold that against her. I really think she is going to be a strong leader who will really position News One Now to be a significant morning show that’s unlike any other on the air.”

Martin said he had a “major role” in determining who his EP would be along with other higherups at the network. “A number of folks applied for the position and we whittled it down to several candidates,” he said. “[The decision] was unanimous.”

In her past…According to a release, prior to joining TV One, Ms. Wilson was Chicago-based and working on nonfiction projects, including TV One’s Deceived and Find Our Missing, as well as, Biography Channel’s John Gotti and Crucibles of Courage hosted by Barack Obama, Paramount’s Dr. Phil and numerous other programs. She has also worked as a field producer at the CNN Chicago Bureau and was a producer, reporter and host at NETV in Lincoln, Neb. as well as a fill-in reporter for the NBC affiliate in Omaha.
