Acclaimed American journalist Roland S. Martin has joined the recently launched Black Information Network (BIN) as a commentator. Martin will curate daily exclusive custom commentary segments that spotlight a variety of perspectives and topics that are top of mind with the African American audience as they relate to politics, economics, lifestyle and more.

"When we launched BIN: Black Information Network, we knew how extremely important it was to provide a forum for trusted voices within the Black Community and there's perhaps no one more trusted and reliable in Black media today than Roland Martin," said Tanita Myers, Director of News Operations for BIN. "He has built a legacy that has paved the way for other Black journalists and continues to use his platform to bring a much needed perspective on topics that matter to both Black Americans and the nation in general."

Martin currently serves as the host and managing editor of "#RolandMartinUnfiltered" a daily digital show. Over the course of his journalistic career, he has captivated listeners and fans from all over the world with his memorable interviews with multiple U.S. presidents, top athletes, entertainers in Hollywood and more. He has been named one of the top 50 political pundits by the Daily Telegraph in the United Kingdom and has made numerous appearances on a variety of American networks, as well as media outlets in Canada, Columbia, Italy, Australia and South Africa.

He was awarded the 2008 President's Award by the National Association of Black Journalists for his work in multiple media platforms and is a member of the Texas A&M University Journalism Hall of Honor at his alma mater. In addition, Martin has more than 30 awards for journalistic excellence, including Journalist of the Year in 2013 by the National Association of Black Journalists. He is also a four-time NAACP Image Award winner including being named Best Host for two years in a row as well as a recipient of the coveted Peabody Award for Best Political Team on Television for his coverage of the 2008 election.

"I am excited to provide daily commentaries to BIN. We are living in a time where we need more coverage about the issues facing African Americans," said Martin. "In addition, I am really thrilled to partner with the iHeartPodcast Network to distribute and market the ‘#RolandMartinUnfiltered' audio podcast. We have seen tremendous growth with the daily video show, and we can't wait to do the same with the audio podcast."
