More changes at Jeff Zucker’s CNN. Longtime contributor Roland Martin confirmed via Twitter today that April 6 will be his last day at the cable news network. “Last day at @cnn is April 6,” Martin tweeted Tuesday morning. Zucker hand in Martin’s exit was not far away. “New boss wants his own peeps,” Marin responded to one of his social media followers about his departure. Although Martin has been at CNN since 2007, his exit doesn’t come as a great surprise. He was suspended last year for what CNN called “regrettable and offensive” tweets that were seen as homophobic by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. The political contributor has been seen less and less on the network since last year’s Presidential election.
