The network that calls itself “The Place for Politics” held its 15th anniversary bash in Washington, DC last night. New York employees of the network will have their own party next week, we’re told. MSNBC went on the air July 15, 1996.
MSNBC president Phil Griffin, NBC News president Steve Capus and NBC News DC bureau chief Antoine Sanfuentes were among those attending last night and taking part in a video answering the question: “How will television news evolve over the next 15 years?”
“I think you’ll see fewer of the big national operations that are all-consuming and a lot more of the niche,” predicts Griffin.
