Mr. "Not My Job to Fact-Check" Chuck Todd will be starting his newest gig at MSNBC daily, beginning September 28 at 5 pm Eastern. Kate Snow will anchor the 3-5 pm slot with supposed "hard news."
We shall see.
From Phil Griffin's memo:
Starting next week, we’ll welcome two new anchors to our afternoon lineup, as we draw on our best breaking news talent from across MSNBC and NBC News.
I’m happy to share the good news that Kate Snow will join our anchor team and be in the chair from 3:00pm to 5:00pm each day. Please join me in welcoming Kate to our dayside lineup, and also congratulating her on another new role – as announced earlier today, Kate is now the anchor of the Sunday edition of NBC Nightly News.
Also, as you know, Brian Williams will be leading our live, breaking news coverage – helping viewers navigate big moments. He will begin on Tuesday with the arrival of Pope Francis.
Then, on Monday, September 28, Chuck Todd’s new show will debut at 5pm. MTP Daily will bring the insight and power of Meet the Press to our air every day of the week. We hope it will become the daily cable news show of record for the 2016 campaign.
It will at least become the daily cable news show of Trump. Beyond that, I cannot imagine Chuckles bringing insightful commentary to the table. On the other hand, maybe he'll revive the "what soup is being served at the White House" feature he left behind when he moved to Meet the Press.
