MSNBC could be making some moves to its weekend programming lineup, and they might involve longtime MSNBC host, Rev. Al Sharpton.
Mediaite reports that Sharpton’s hour-long Sunday morning show PoliticsNation will be replaced with a new, two-hour weekend morning panel program hosted by MSNBC anchor David Gura.
PoliticsNation launched in 2011 on weeknights at 6 p.m., before moving to Sundays at 8 a.m. in 2015.
According to the report, starting Oct. 13, “Gura will be hosting the two hour panel show between 8 and 10 a.m. ET on Saturday and Sunday…His show remains nameless, though sources said MSNBC is considering reviving the name for Chris Hayes‘ old show: Up.”
In addition to the Saturday and Sunday morning show, Gura – a former Bloomberg Newser who started at MSNBC on Nov. 25 of last year – could also anchor the 2 p.m. hour on Saturdays and Sundays.
Sharpton’s hour-long political show would move from Sundays at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a live show Saturdays and Sundays. MSNBC Live currently occupies that hour.
MSNBC is declining comment.
Re-runs of MSNBC weekday prime programming would continue to hold the 6 p.m. hour on Saturdays and Sundays, leading into Kasie Hunt‘s two-hour Sunday evening panel program Kasie DC, which airs from 7 – 9 a.m. ET, and has posted solid ratings since its debut on Oct. 15 2017.
