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 and #NewsOneNow on Twitter for a chance to have Martin ask Clinton and Sanders their questions. will also feature clips and community interviews from the event.

"CNN and TV ONE working together can facilitate discussion of issues particularly relevant to our audience, an underserved yet very important constituency."
