Zerlina Maxwell to Leave MSNBC Sept. 15

By Mark Mwachiro 

Zerlina Maxwell, on Tuesday, announced on Twitter that she will be leaving MSNBC once her streaming show ends September 15. 

Maxwell has worked with MSNBC since 2018 as an analyst—and her Peacock program was among MSNBC’s first streaming offerings launching on Oct. 5, 2020.

Her show and Ayman Mohyeldin’s were the first MSNBC on Peacock shows to be canceled last month by NBC News, as it is placing an increased emphasis (and resources) on its substantial portfolio of streaming news offerings.


Maxwell said she is “really excited about the next chapter—and I’m looking forward to moving into a space at the forefront of where and the media is headed!”

Mohyeldin will continue to host his weekend primetime show on the cable version of MSNBC—and will continue to serve as a substitute host during MSNBC’s weekday primetime schedule.
