Roland Martin Exits CNN

Roland Martin's last day at CNN is April 6th.  He announced it on twitter yesterday:

Martin send this email to POLITICO:

[My] agents notified me that they had been informed that at the conclusion of the two month extension granted in February, my last day at CNN would be April 6. I have thoroughly enjoyed my little over six years there. There are many folks I will miss dearly, especially wonderful colleagues like Josanne Lopez, Soledad O’Brien, Ali Velshi, and so many bookers and producers.
But I also miss the folks I tried to speak for and represent the most when I was on the air: the men and the women who worked on the crew; the security guards; and even the janitorial workers. Those were the people I most spoke for; those were the people who would cheer me on as I walked down the streets, in the grocery store; and at airports.
I have had the likes of Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Spike Lee, Halle Berry, and others in sports and entertainment thank me for being an unwavering and unapologetic voice of truth, and unwilling to back down when someone needed to stand up.
Before I signed with CNN, I sat in the lobby of 1 Time Warner Center and said, “God, if it’s your will to be here, then so be it.’ I said the same these last two months.
I’ve worked hard to ensure that my voice wasn’t heard in one place. I will continue with my show on TV One, a network I was with before CNN; will continue my daily segment on the Tom Joyner Morning Show; and will continue my nationally syndicated column.
In my final days at CNN when I’m on the air, I will to do as the Tuskegee Airmen did, fight to the last hour, last minute, last second, for what is right. And I will do that as long as there is breath in my body.

Dude, wearing an ascot and yapping your mouth on CNN is hardly comparable to Tuskeegee Airman. Is this guy nuts?

CNN never learns. Now they are thinking about hiring
Elizabeth from The View. ABC is dropping her and Joy
because they are turning off viewers. At some point
CNN will understand news not opinionated host will
save the network. How about finding ways to make the
news interesting. Talking head are getting old and will
never bring CNN new viewers, The audience for that is
getting older and is either left or right. Prepare for the
generational and demographic changes when it comes
to viewers. CNN is not diverse and it is hurting.
