TV One and CNN to
co-host Ohio Democratic Presidential Town Hall Sunday, March 13th
(March 10, 2016) TV ONE and CNN will partner to host the "CNN-TV ONE
Ohio Democratic Presidential Town Hall" on Sunday, March 13 from 8-10
p.m. ET, two days before five states hold primary contests. Moderated by
Roland S. Martin (pictured), host and managing editor of TV ONE's "News One Now,"
and Jake Tapper of CNN, the nationally-televised primetime special will
take place at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, and air live on
CNN and TV ONE.
The two-hour event, which will emphasize issues facing Black America,
will also be simulcast on Urban Adult Contemporary Radio One stations in
each of its 15 urban markets and live-streamed online and across mobile
devices via CNNgo.
The Saturday, March 13 event will follow a similar format of the five
Democratic and Republican town halls that CNN has hosted this year and
serve as the closing statement in this "Super Tuesday" Democratic
primary before Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio hold
primaries on Tuesday, March 15.
"Every election matters, and this year's Presidential campaign is no
different," stated Martin. "African Americans are some of the most
astute voters. The issues we care about the most deserve to be addressed
by anyone seeking to be President of the United States. I look forward
to vigorous and honest discussion with former Secretary Hillary Clinton
and Senator Bernie Sanders."
Following the Town Hall, on Monday, March 14, "News One Now" will
continue putting the news into perspective from 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. ET in a
special two-hour edition broadcasting from the student union facility at
The Ohio State University.
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 and Sanders their questions. NewsOne.com will also
feature clips and community interviews from the event.
"This multi-platform news initiative combines the complementary
strengths of our two organizations to reach members of the African
American community via every available avenue," says Brad Siegel,
President of TV ONE. "CNN and TV ONE working together can facilitate
discussion of issues particularly relevant to our audience, an
underserved yet very important constituency."
