Earlier this week, the network reported a 35 percent ratings growth of season four of “Washington Watch,” a Sunday morning (11am Eastern / 8am Pacific) news program hosted by the political analyst.
“Washington Watch has allowed TV One to keep our loyal and expanding viewership informed and up-to-date about key issues and current affairs on a regularly basis,” said TV One’s president, Wonya Lucas. “Roland Martin deserves much of the credit for the leap in viewership and we’re pleased to have become such an important touchstone for Black audiences during this important Presidential election year.”
Martin commented that the show is successful due to its raw nature and focus on the Black community.
“Black Americans have made it clear that they want their perspective heard, and too often mainstream Sunday shows have ignored us,” Martin said.
