Alex Wagner To Take Over Rachel Maddow's Time Slot At MSNBC

Source: Deadline Hollywood

Alex Wagner has been picked to succeed Rachel Maddow in Maddow’s lynchpin 9 p.m. time slot at MSNBC. Wagner, a political veteran who recently returned to MSNBC as a senior political analyst and guest anchor in February, will host a show Tuesday-Fridays, with Maddow to continue on Mondays.

The new show is set to debut August 16, just in time for the heat of the midterm elections.

The New York Times, which broke the news Monday, said the Maddow-hosted show on Mondays will continue to to be titled The Rachel Maddow Show. A name for Wagner’s show is TBD.

“Alex Wagner in the 9pm hour was a clear choice. Her unique perspective—built on more than two decades in journalism—and tenacious reporting in the U.S. and abroad will help our audiences contextualize what matters,” said MSNBC President Rashida Jones. “I am looking forward to watching Alex thrive in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.”

I remember Phil Griffin was president for many many years. Somehow I nearly thought Rashida Jones of "Parks and Recreation" fame became MSNBC president.

6. Maddow will be missed

I do hope Alex Wagner will take on some of her traits as to ask those being interviewed if she explained things right ,,that way people knew it was the truth...
