MSNBC Changes: Update
Mediaite’s Joe Concha has an update on the changes he reported yesterday…
The news comes after another highly-placed source with knowledge close to the situation says while Díaz-Balart may lose an hour off of his current two-hour weekday morning timeslot (The Rundown with José Díaz-Balart) as reported yesterday, he will remain as an anchor in a condensed capacity during weekday mornings. Said capacity will likely be the 10:00 AM-11:00 AM slot that immediately follows the extended version coming for Morning Joe, which–as originally reported here–will run until 10:00 AM.
This makes a lot more sense because yesterday’s story had Tamron Hall taking over 10-11 which made no sense at all given she’s got 9-10 on the Today Show and the logistics of going from there to MSNBC in minutes seemed implausible.
