CNN commentator Roland Martin, a former Fort Worth Star-Telegram City Hall reporter, will leave CNN on April 6, reports Richard Prince's Journal-isms.
Martin, whose DFW tenure also included stints as the managing editor of the Dallas Weekly and as a reporter for KRLD/1080 AM and morning anchor/news director for the now-defunct "Soul 73" incarnation of KKDA/730 AM, made the announcement Tuesday via Twitter, where he is always a busy man.
He goes into more detail on Richard Prince's Journal-isms, where Martin says he didn't fit the vision of new CNN boss Jeff Zucker.
"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," Martin said in a message to Journal-isms.
"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."
