TV One’s News One Now, the first morning news program in history to focus on news and analysis of politics, entertainment, sports, and culture from an explicitly African American perspective, is devoting its entire Monday, Nov. 9 (7-8 a.m. ET) broadcast to covering Presidential Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton’s Nov. 7 Orangeburg, South Carolina Town Hall Meeting.
The broadcast will showcase the town hall, which is being hosted the South Carolina Legislative Black Caucus, and moderated by News One Now’s host and managing editor Roland S. Martin. During the event, Martin will question Clinton on a variety of issues, including Black unemployment, HBCUs, criminal justice reform, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and more.
“African Americans are some of the most sophisticated voters in America, and they deserve to hear from all of the presidential candidates, Republican and Democrat,” saidMartin. “We’ve already had sit down interviews with Dr. Ben Carson and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and we are looking forward to hearing directly from Secretary Hillary Clinton about the issues that are top of mind for African Americans. And it is my desire for every candidate to speak to our audience as to why they should be president of the United States.”
In addition, viewers are encouraged to visit News One Now’s companion website NewsOne.com and #NewsOneNow on Twitter for a chance to have Martin ask Clinton their questions. NewsOne.com will also feature clips and community interviews from the event.
