Stephanie Ruhle to MSNBC…

The New York Post’s Kevin Dugan scoops that Bloomberg TV’s Stephanie Ruhle is jumping to MSNBC…

MSNBC has brought in a new face as part of its hard news overhaul.

The cable news outfit scooped up Bloomberg TV morning anchor Stephanie Ruhle, who will appear for an hour during its MSNBC Live daytime coverage, The Post has learned.

NBC News chief Andy Lack is moving MSNBC, which ranks last among the major news networks in the ratings, away from left-leaning political shows. Ruhle is the first anchor Lack has hired from outside under this hard news strategy.

Starting in May, she will anchor for about an hour during MSNBC’s 9 a.m.-to-5 p.m. market news show, a source said. A network spokeswoman declined to comment.

This is surprising news, mostly because I’m having trouble figuring out where in MSNBC’s lineup Ruhle would land. On the surface it would appear MSNBC didn’t have a slot it needed filling…at least not based on what the schedule looked like prior to the network going to “The Place For Politics 2016” schedule which saw a whole bunch of anchors appear on MSNBC’s air who weren’t there before. It seems that the old schedule before the politics programming shift is not going to be used going forward…at least not without modifications.

  1. I suppose she could replace JD-B who is now mostly a fill in on his own show. I doubt she’ll be covering anything but the POTUS race, as that seems to be the only story covered on MSNBC at the moment.

    ” she will anchor for about an hour during MSNBC’s 9 a.m.-to-5 p.m. market news show”. That looks like business news cut-ins throughout the day.
