Roland Martin to Air Special Web Program

Despite being benched at CNN, Roland Martin is carving his own path through Super Tuesday, when he will anchor a special web edition of “Washington Watch.”

On Tuesday, March 6, TV One Cable Network’s chief political editor will host a special Super Tuesday edition of his news show from Howard University’ School of Business Theatre, 2600 Sixth Street. He will broadcast live on the web from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. EST. The event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.

The event will be a three-hour live web broadcast.

“There is considerable interest among African Americans in this election year, just as it was in 2008,” said Martin in a release. “We want to be able to weigh in on the election results by offering a unique perspective that will not be heard on any other cable news or broadcast channel. By having a live audience of nearly 300 Howard University students, we will also be engaging a significant part of the electorate.”

It won’t all be painfully serious. Comedian Huggy Lowdown will provide comedy for the broadcast.

Along with providing commentary and election results, Martin and his panel will delve into topics such as voter suppression and African Americans and the GOP. Confirmed guests include Joe Madison, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio show host; Rich Galen, conservative commentator and former press secretary for Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich; Jeff Johnson, correspondent; Dr. Christ Metzler, Georgetown University professor; Sophia Nelson, analyst and author “Black Woman Redefined” and Deborah Simmons, a TWT correspondent.
