TV One’s “NewsOne Now” is extending its broadcast an additional hour during this week. Hosted by veteran journalist and managing editor Roland S. Martin, “NewsOne Now’s” special year-end extended broadcast, from 7-9 a.m. ET, will offer viewers more in-depth coverage and reflect on 2016’s top stories in news, politics, entertainment, and sports. The show will also pay tribute and honor prominent African Americans we lost this year with a memorial vignette.
In addition, NewsOne Now will introduce “Wisdom from Next Generation Voices,” a new, daily series on how African Americans need to move forward under a Trump presidency. The segment will feature panelists Brittany Packnett, vice president of national community alliances for Teach for America and co-founder of Campaign Zero; Tamika D. Mallory, a civil rights leader and anti-violence advocate; Carmen Perez, executive director and co-founder for The Gathering for Justice; and Rep. Alicia Reece (D-OH, 33rd District).
