Ari Melber, of MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” will be among a rotating cast of hosts for the network’s Noon hour, when Alex Wagner moves to 4pmET.
Joy Reid, who had been filling in at 4pm since the departure of Martin Bashir last month, is also expected to fill in at NoonET. MSNBC hasn’t made any final decisions, so the fill-in situation is still very fluid.
The network also has a vacancy at 11am as Thomas Roberts moves to the early morning hours starting Monday.
MSNBC has tried out hosts temporarily before permanently giving them a show in the past, including Rev. Al Sharpton who filled in at 6pm for most of the summer in 2011 before being named permanent host.
No word yet on the plan for 11am or when and where Ronan Farrow will land on the MSNBC schedule.
>Update: An MSNBC spokesperson denies Ari Melber and Joy Reid will be part of the host rotation.
