Primetime Changes Coming To MSNBC This Summer; 1 Or 2 Hours Of Long-Form

msnbcprimejune26.jpg“I think we’re going to have some program changes this summer,” NBC News prez Steve Capus tells the New York Times in this must-read about MSNBC’s new leadership. “Prime time is the focus. That’s where the money is,” Capus adds.
