MSNBC: Thomas Roberts to Replace Ronan Farrow, Joy Reid

An MSNBC spokesperson tells Breitbart News that the daytime hours currently anchored by Ronan Farrow and Joy Ann Reid will be canceled and replaced with a two-hour, 1-3 pm block, anchored by Thomas Roberts. He will officially assume these duties March 2.

Currently, Roberts anchors “Way Too Early” at 5:30 am. Until his replacement can be found, “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will start a half-hour earlier to fill in.

Farrow will turn his attention to a series of primetime specials and will be seen throughout the network as a special correspondent.  Reid will become a national correspondent with duties throughout the many MSNBC platforms, including a role as a regular contributor during MSNBC primetime.

According to the spokesperson, “MSNBC dayside programming will now feature news-focused coverage beginning at 9 am with The Daily Rundown and continuing through 3 pm, which includes news-focused coverage provided by Tamron Hall at 11 am and Andrea Mitchell at 12:00 pm.”

In a previous daytime MSNBC overhaul, both Reid and Farrow premiered their respective shows a little over a year ago. This will be Thomas Roberts’ second shot at a daytime MSNBC slot.
