Roland Martin’s, ‘News One Now’ Cancelled? – Tha Wire
Page Six reports that Wednesday December 7, 2018, TVOne announced that Roland Martin morning news show, News One Now, has been canceled. Wait...what? I'm still trying to come to terms with the news myself. Fans and viewers of the incredibly popular show have been blasting the network ever since the shocking news was revealed.
They weren't the only ones who didn't see it coming. According the reports Martin and his team were completely blindsided with the decision. A source close to the situation clued Page Six, “They called a meeting on Wednesday and told the staff they were canceling the show.” Which is pretty crazy, because in September the network expanded the show? Nonetheless, the "source" revealed the reason network execs decided to ax the show is, “They’re having significant financial problems and they have to scale back." Adding, “There were lots of tears … the staff was completely caught off guard.”
Wow! Well on the bright side, the network isn't getting rid of Roland Martin all together confirming they, “are committed to providing quality news to our viewers and to our long-standing relationship with @rolandsmartin #NewsOneNow who will continue to have a voice on #TVOne.”
In other shocking news, TheBoomBox reports Trey Songz allegedly had a run-in with a female fan at a strip joint in Philadelphia. Over the last year the singer has been getting rather negative press concerning bizarre outbursts in public. Last year the star spazzed out, after his show was cut short officials at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. He copped a plea deal in August, for destroying various props on stage and other items.
In this new report a female fan claims she was assaulted by the singer after she tried to get a picture with him. According to a report by TMZ, the woman alleges she bought tickets for a meet & greet with Trigger VIP section of the Vanity Grand Cabaret. She claims in court docs when she tried to take the pic, Trey allegedly smacked her hand and caused her phone to fly back in her face. The impact supposedly so hard that the phone broke her glasses.
She goes on the accuse the singer of being mean and rude toward everyone in the venue the entire night. Of course she's suing for damages, looking to score a check to the tune of 50K. Her lawsuit not only names Songz, but the strip club as well. Legal papers state the woman is holding owners of the club accountable, because they should've done more to protect their customers. She accused Vanity Grand Cabaret for being irresponsible, claiming they should've known he had a history of "violence and negative interaction with the public."
So far Trigger has made no comment on the matter, and for that matter neither has the venue. Keep ya posted if anything changes. In the meantime, check back every weekday for the latest entertainment news. Catch Tha Wire exclusively on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
