MSNBC’s Joy Reid will host a new program airing from 10 a.m.-Noon ET on Saturday and Sundays, taking over the timeslot left behind by Melissa Harris-Perry.
“Melissa did a show that was incredibly valuable,” Reid said in a statement. “Instead of trying to replace it, we will fill the space with something new; something compelling, and something that adds to the conversation.”
Harris-Perry had an ugly falling out with MSNBC in February.
“MSNBC viewers crave not only the facts, but also in-depth discussion and analysis from a range of perspectives,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin. “There is no one better equipped than Joy to lead this new project, and create a place for the kind of unique discussion our audience has come to expect.”
The show debuts next Saturday, May 7.
