MSNBC Gives Morning Joe 4 Hours & Adds Kate Snow

MSNBC to Expand Morning Joe One More Hour; Kate Snow Gets Afternoon RoleKate Snow of NBC News will start in MSNBC’s dayside programming. Ms. Snow formerly a weekend anchor for Good Morning America and a frequent face seen on the NBC Nightly News and Dateline will inherit the 3-5 p.m. ET time slot on weekdays on MSNBC.

Also of major note, Morning Joe will be expanded to a four-hour program (it’s currently three). Starting soon, the political roundtable show can be seen from 6 a.m. ET until 10.

One notable causality to emerge from these moves is current 9-11 a.m. anchor José Díaz-Balart. With Morning Joe going to 10 a.m., Tamron Hall will then take over the 10-12 noon slot, thereby leaving Mr. Díaz-Balart as the odd man out.

For the rest of the afternoon, Andrea Mitchell will stay in the 12-1 p.m. position. Likewise, Thomas Roberts will remain in the 1-3 p.m. slot that he took over a few months ago as the network began its pivot from opinion to (mostly) hard news programming.

Following the aforementioned Snow in the 3-5 p.m. block will be Chuck Todd at 5 p.m.
