Kathy O’Hearn Tapped to EP Farrow Show

Politico’s Dylan Byers writes that Ronan Farrow now has an EP…

MSNBC has hired veteran news producer Kathy O’Hearn to serve as Executive Producer on Ronan Farrow’s new MSNBC program, sources familiar with her plans told POLITICO on Thursday.

O’Hearn, a former executive producer at CNN, ABC News, and CNBC, previously served as Senior Vice President at The Daily Beast. She left late last year with Tina Brown to serve as SVP on Brown’s new events and conferences venture.

And then there’s this which strongly suggests something I had long suspected…that MSNBC was not going to launch Farrow’s show until after the Olympics…

MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski declined to discuss details about Farrow’s new program.

“There have been no announcements made about Ronan Farrow’s show,” she wrote. “We’ll be announcing details in the coming weeks.”

  1. this thing might actually be good.

  2. “And then there’s this which strongly suggests something I had long suspected…that MSNBC was not going to launch Farrow’s show until after the Olympics…”

    ^^Makes sense to me. The Olympics will play havoc with MSNBC’s dayside schedule so getting a feel of how the show is doing would be hard.

    The thing about the proposed show that surprises me most is the plan to make it a dayside program. From what we are hearing about about the shows edgy style, and focus on foreign affairs and serious topics it seems much more suited to a late night or weekend scheduling.

  3. It also wouldn’t surprise me to see Farrow sub-host during the Olympics to see how he performs as a host on live TV. He’s been on the network as a pundit quite a bit of late and you can see his has grown more at ease and confident with each appearance.

  4. I hope the tentative name “The Ronan Show” is only tentative. Horrible name.
