NABJ Hall Of Fame: Johnathan Rodgers, Pat Harvey, Gwen Ifill And Wallace Terry

Lots of people help us to produce “Washington Watch” every week, but there’s one man who had the vision to put it on the air in the first place and he was inducted this week into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame at the Newseum here in Washington, D.C. Roland Martin’s friend, colleague, mentor and fellow brother in Alpha Phi Alpha Johnathan Rodgers. The former head of the CBS Television Stations and the Discovery Networks, he was a founding CEO of TV One, and he is the most successful Black television executive ever and, flat-out, one of the top executives in all of cable history.

MR. MARTIN:  Lots of folks help us put on “Washington Watch” every week, but there’s one man who had the vision to put it on the air in the first place two and-a-half years ago, and he was inducted this week into the National Association of Black Journalists Hall of Fame at the Newseum here in Washington, D.C.  I’m talking about my friend, colleague, mentor and fellow brother in Alpha Phi Alpha Johnathan Rodgers.  The former head of the CBS Television Stations and the Discovery Networks, he was a founding CEO of TV One, and he is the most successful Black television executive ever and, flat-out, one of the top executives in all of cable history.

So, certainly congratulations to my friend and brother in Alpha Johnathan, and also to all the honorees in – in ABJ, including anchor Pat Harvey, Gwen Ifill and also Wallace Terry.  So, great job to all of you.
