TV One Suspends News One Now

     TV One has announced that after four years of award-winning programming and distinguished service to viewers as the only Black daily newscast on television, the network has decided to suspend the production of NewsOne Now as a daily morning news show.

   TV One has announced that after four years of award-winning programming and distinguished service to viewers as the only Black daily newscast on television, the network has decided to suspend the production of NewsOne Now as a daily morning news show. 

 

     TV One premiered NewsOne Now in 2013, to provide a daily voice to Black America on important political and social issues impacting our community. 

     “Providing a platform for Black voices is in the DNA of our entire company,” said TV One CEO Alfred Liggins.  “As a Black-owned multi-media company, Urban One (parent company of TV One) engages Black America daily, not just on television, but radio and also online via NewsOne.com and on 77 digital platforms.  We know there is a void in mainstream media and we plan to continue to be an outlet for Black news. Roland Martin will be a part of that plan.”

     Adjustments had made to the format to save the show, but NewsOne Now failed to gain traction with advertisers and viewers.
