    Roland will have to do the Oprah and get his own show because i watch his show every morning that it is on and every morning i say (wow, i know that the MAN doesn’t want a brother like this that is so smart on TV waking up black folks with information that is good for black folks coming from a real black man.

    When Roland goes, so do I! They recently change his show from 1 hour to 2. So didn’t they know about needed budget cuts then! If budget cuts were the issue, the could have cut all those made for TVONE movies and all those Good Times, Sanford and Son, and Cosby shows that everyone is tired if seeing. Something stinks here!

    But they keeping Sister Circle? ?

    Weird how Atlanta cut Tom Joyners Morning show right before this. Roland broadcasted simultaneously with them! This seems very fishy!
