Thomas Roberts announced on his Facebook page today that Thursday’s edition of his MSNBC Live hour, which aired at 2 p.m ET, was his last.
“My colleagues are incredible people and I am so proud of our team and our accomplishments,” Roberts writes. “I can’t thank my colleagues enough for years of their dedication to me and our show. Also, a BIG thanks to the viewers who’ve been supporters of our coverage at MSNBC.”
Roberts was made aware of the cancellation around Thanksgiving. MSNBC declined to comment on Roberts’ future with the network. But an insider tells TVNewser he’s in discussions to take on a new role with MSNBC. His contract runs through November, 2017.
Roberts joined MSNBC full-time 6 years ago this month after working in a freelance capacity for 8 months. Roberts and his team won the network an Emmy in September for their coverage of the Supreme Court decision on marriage equality.
