TV One Airing Town Hall Special on Baltimore

By Brian Flood 

TV One, the 11-year-old, black-focused network available in about 57 million pay TV households, will hold a two-hour prime-time special on the situation in Baltimore. State of Emergency: Baltimore and Beyond A News One Now Town Hall Meeting airs on Tuesday at 9pmET.

“Issues that significantly affect the black community are routinely covered on the live weekday version of News One Now,” said TV One president Brad Siegel. “However, this town hall special allows TV One to expand the national dialogue as it relates to the ongoing tensions between the Black community and law enforcement.”

News One Now’s host and managing editor Roland S. Martin will moderate the discussion that is scheduled to include a panel of notable newsmakers, politicians, law enforcement officers and civil rights activists.


“News One Now has been a consistent platform for exploring issues important to African Americans, including the crises in Ferguson, New York, and most recently Baltimore,” said Martin.
