BILL COSBY SENTENCING STATEMENT FROM JOURNALIST ROLAND MARTIN, PRODUCER/HOST OF #ROLANDMARTINUNFILTE


Roland Martin an award-winning journalist, multimedia producer and host of #ROLANDMARTINUNFILTERED released the following statement in response to the news of Bill Cosby's sentencing for sexual assault:


"The fall from the stratosphere of Bill Cosby is complete. Once one of America’s most beloved and iconic figures will now be seen and remembered in a completely different light as a result of his sexual assault conviction, and now, as he heads to prison. For all of his historic work as a groundbreaking pioneer in Hollywood and commitment to historically Black colleges and the arts, it is still stunning to hear Bill Cosby referred to as a “violent sexual predator.”


Award-winning journalist, author, TV host and multimedia entrepreneur Roland S. Martin recently launched #RolandMartinUnfiltered, a daily digital show, in early September. The show reports on news and current events that are important to people of color, covering a wide range of topics including politics, social justice, sports, education, business, finance, entertainment and pop culture.


#RolandMartinUnfiltered is an independent news source that addresses many of the top stories today that are largely ignored by mainstream media,” said Martin who produces the show through his company, Nu Vision Media, Inc. “In my career, I have focused on many of these issues: voter suppression, HBCUs, the increasing wealth gap in America, and we will continue to do so in an unapologetic and unfiltered way.”


#RolandMartinUnfiltered is a fully digital experience that streams live daily on Facebook, YouTube, Periscope and Instagram TV, and is available on-demand on a multitude of digital platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Firestick, Google Chromecast and more. The daily digital show is “powered by the people” and incorporates real-time interactions and commentary from the viewers.


The digital show format features in-depth discussions and one-on-one interviews with authors, artists, athletes, entertainment personalities, and other top names in education, public policy, and academia.
