Changes At MSNBC

Ed Schultz will now host MSNBC’s 6pm hour, David Shuster with Tamron Hall will take over 3-5pm and Norah O’Donnell will move to the morning– more details on that will be announced at a later date.

TVNewser: While it’s status quo for the 10pmET hour on MSNBC, Ed Schultz will take over the 6pmET slot currently hosted by MSNBC’s David Shuster.

The announcement was made by Keith Olbermann at the end of his show with Schultz as his guest. Olbermann said “the new news hour” called “The Ed Show” would premiere Monday. “I’m just honored to be a part of the MSNBC lineup,” Schultz told Olbermann.

The news was first reported on Huffington Post earlier tonight. (Update: Salon’s Alex Koppelman appears to have had the news ahead of HuffPo, at 7:45pm).

Current 6pm host Shuster, who took over the hour in December when David Gregory was named moderator of “Meet the Press,” will take over anchoring from 3-5pmET and continue filling in for Olbermann.

Schultz, who has been a presence on cable news for years, is best known for his national progressive radio talk show. His Website intimated at the announcement with the blaring headline, “Ed will be on Countdown with Keith Olbermann tonight at 8pmET!”
