Washington Watch with Roland Martin was a political talk show hosted by award-winning journalist Roland Martin and aired on TV One from 2009 to 2013. The show covered a range of political issues that were relevant to the African American community. Roland Martin was a seasoned journalist, who brought his wealth of experience to every episode of the show. He had previously worked for CNN, where he was a contributor for many of their programs, including American Morning and Anderson Cooper 360. This experience made Martin's hosting of Washington Watch with Roland Martin even more insightful and engaging.

The show featured a variety of guests from the political world, including senators, congressmen and women, commentators, activists, and political experts. Each week, Martin and his guests discussed some of the biggest political issues of the day, as well as what they meant for African Americans. The show tackled issues ranging from healthcare reform to voter suppression and everything in between.

One of the standout aspects of Washington Watch with Roland Martin was the diversity of opinions among its guests and the topics discussed. The show was not afraid to talk about controversial or divisive issues, and it often presented different viewpoints on these issues. This diversity of perspective made the show very engaging and thought-provoking.

Despite its focus on political issues, the show was also very entertaining. Martin had an easy, conversational style that made it easy for guests to open up and share their opinions. As a result, the show often felt like a conversation among friends, rather than a formal political talk show.

One of the most memorable episodes of the show was a special on the first anniversary of President Obama's inauguration. The episode featured a panel of political experts and commentators who analyzed the first year of Obama's presidency and discussed what it meant for African Americans. The panelists provided a range of viewpoints, but one thing they all agreed on was that Obama's presidency was historic and that the changes he was making would have a lasting impact on the country.

Another memorable episode of the show was a panel discussion on the role of the black church in politics. The episode featured several pastors and religious experts who discussed how the black church had historically been a driving force for political change in the African American community. The panelists also talked about how current political issues were being addressed by the black church and what role it would play in future political struggles.

Throughout its run, Washington Watch with Roland Martin was a thought-provoking and informative political talk show that was not afraid to tackle controversial issues, and it provided a valuable platform for African Americans to discuss the political issues that mattered to them. Martin's expertise as a journalist and his engaging style made for enjoyable viewing, and the show remains a high point in political commentary from that era.
