Not too surprisingly, there won’t be much doc block on MSNBC tomorrow, or Olympics.
Instead, the network will be live from 6amET-10pmET, “in preparation for the announcement of Senator Barack Obama‘s running mate.” We tend to think that will already have happened.
Alex Witt anchors an hour to start the morning, followed by a five-hour Morning Joe until NoonET. Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann appear in the daytime and at night, as do Andrea Mitchell and David Shuster.
(CNN and FNC will also be live as usual.)
