Is CNN Shutting Roland Martin Down Early?

We already know that Roland Martin will have his last day at CNN on April 6. But could the network be trying to shut him down even earlier than that? Fishbowl DC says that, with more than two weeks left to his contract, the network is already cutting him out of the programs he has been contributing to.

“We knew something was awry when we noticed Martin hadn’t tweeted his usual #bringthefunk alert on Twitter that he’d be appearing on Erin Burnette’s [sic] ‘Out Front,’ which he hasn’t done in a month,” the site says. “On Wednesday he tweeted that he did Canadian TV. The Canadians can find time to bring Martin’s funk, but not CNN?”

The story goes on to note that he’s been absent from other shows that he had also been appearing on. Fishbowl DC says it tried to contact both CNN and Martin, but apparently hadn’t heard back. We did see Martin tweeting about Scandal last night, so he hasn’t gone completely MIA.

Separately but in other CNN news, TVNewser and the New York Post (which has been following this story closely) says that the network is interested in bringing on Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Lots of changes, but will it bring on the viewers?
