Report: Chris Matthews in Contract Negotiations

Politico’s Michael Calderone reports that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is in contract negotiations with NBC this week. Matthews’ current deal with NBC/MSNBC is not up for another six months. Calderone writes:

What’s still unclear is whether the current talks are to renew his contract ahead of schedule — as the network recently did with Keith Olbermann last month — or to break it, in order to start early on a Senate campaign in Pennsylvania.

Earlier today, Calderone reported, “Matthews has been asking advisers whether to step down from his MSNBC post well before his contract expires. At one recent meeting, he was advised that if he truly intends to run, he should resign from the network as soon as possible.”
