Shuster Named Permanent Host of MSNBC’s “1600”

From the New York Times:

    MSNBC is replacing one David with another on its 6 p.m. program, “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

    David Shuster, right, who often appears with Chris Matthews, left, will host “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”

    The cable news channel, owned by NBC Universal, is expected to announce Monday that David Shuster, a Washington correspondent, will succeed David Gregory on the political program, people with knowledge of the move said Sunday night.

    Mr. Gregory started anchoring the early evening hour, then named “Race for the White House,” last March. Last week, after Mr. Gregory was named the new moderator of “Meet the Press,” Mr. Shuster served as the substitute host.
