News One Now, the African American-targeted news and analysis program on TV One, will mark the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina with a one-hour special at 9 a.m. Aug. 28 looking at the state of the New Orleans school system.
The New Orleans Charter School Revolution: Ten Years After Katrina, which will originate on location in the city with News One Now anchor Roland Martin, will feature parents, teachers, kids, principals and public officials in a town hall meeting, and will profile a graduate of the city's almost all-charter school system.
TV One last week said News One Now, its weekday morning show, will move to 7 a.m. from its current 9 a.m. time slot beginning Sept. 14.
"[W]e are confident News One Now is ready to take on the traditional morning news crowd," Martin said of the move.
