Following the announcement this morning that “Morning Joe” EP Chris Licht will be joining CBS News, MSNBC has announced the new management team on the morning program.

Alex Korson has been named EP of “Morning Joe,” while Ann Edelberg has been named senior supervising producer.

“Alex and Ann have been driving forces for the show’s success and I’m confident that they will continue to make “Morning Joe” the most talked about morning news program,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin in a note to staff this morning.

In the email, Griffin also thanked Licht for his service at the network:

“I also want to take this opportunity to thank Chris Licht for his leadership. Chris has had an impressive career at MSNBC – as the executive producer of both “Scarborough Country” and “Morning Joe.” I wish him good luck with his new role at CBS.”
