MSNBC shuffles daytime following departures
NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC has given Ronan Farrow a time slot for his new show, part of a shuffling of the news network’s daytime schedule.
Farrow is Mia Farrow’s son and a former foreign policy official in the Obama administration. He will start Feb. 24 with a one-hour show at 1 p.m.
He’ll be followed by a new show at 2 p.m. with Joy Reid, managing editor of The Grio.com. Current shows hosted by Tamron Hall and Andrea Mitchell will air at 11 a.m. and noon.
The daytime openings were created by the move of Thomas Roberts to the early slot before “Morning Joe” and the exit of Martin Bashir following crude comments he made about Sarah Palin.
Alex Wagner moved her show from noon to 4 p.m. following Bashir’s exit, and she’ll keep that schedule.
