CNN contributor Roland Martin is relocating to the nation’s capital after living in Chicago for the last six years.

Martin announced the move in an email to the Chicago Sun-Times. Why D.C.? “Well, I go there every week to tape my TV One show, and this will significantly cut the amount of travel I do right now,” he tells the paper.

“Plus, I will have an expanded role on CNN by having my own branded segment, and this will make my availability in-studio that much easier…”

There’s no word from CNN on what that “expanded role” or “branded segment” will be.
