Roland Martin to Leave CNN

by at . Comments

Tweeting that he is not one of new Chairman Jeff Zucker's "peeps," Roland Martin announced yesterday that he is leaving CNN.

The political contributor's final day at the network will be April 6.

Martin made headlines for all the wrong reasons in February, Tweeting what many considered to be a homophobic remark when he referenced a David Beckham underwear commercial and wrote:

"If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham's H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him!"

The reporter was suspended as a result and re-instated a month later.

It's unclear what Martin will do next, though he continues to host Washington Watch on TV One.

In the wake of Zucker taking over CNN late last year, James Carville, Mary Matalin and Bill Bennett have all left. Ann Curry, conversely, is reportedly trying to make her way to the network.
