Today On the Tom Joyner Morning Show: Roland Martin talks to us about one of the NBA's most controversial moments, LA Clippers' Donald Sterling's alleged racial comments. Bomani Jones, ESPN's daily talk show host, gives us the rundown of Donald's racial history.
"This is not new. Half of what's on that tape is tame compared to what he's said," Jones said.
The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) announced today that Roland S. Martin, nationally syndicated columnist, television host, and radio and television commentator, is to receive the organization's Journalist of the Year award. It is one of NABJ's most coveted honors celebrating the accomplishments of black journalists and those who support blacks in the media. Martin was selected for the award by NABJ's Board of Directors.
Those who nominated Martin noted his important coverage of voter suppression, perhaps the biggest story of the 2012 presidential election.
"No other African-American journalist and member of NABJ brought more news and analysis to black communities about the most important story of 2012 than Roland Martin," said Vanessa Williams, former NABJ President and an editor at The Washington Post. "As managing editor and host of Washington Watch on TV One, Roland consistently offered journalism that reflected the hopes and fears of many African American voters as they anxiously watched to see whether Barack Obama would win a second term as president of the United States."
