MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin and ESPN anchor Lindsay Czarniak tied the knot Saturday at the Church of the Holy City in Washington, DC. Both Melvin and Czarniak worked at NBC’s WRC in DC. Not long after Czarniak packed her bags for Bristol this summer, Melvin was hired at MSNBC. A reception was held at the Hay – Adams hotel. The couple will live in Connecticut.
After interest from a few networks, Craig Melvin is staying in the NBCU family and is joining MSNBC as a dayside anchor and correspondent for NBC News.
Melvin joins from NBC station WRC in Washington, DC where he was a weekend anchor.
MSNBC has not said which hour or hours Melvin will anchor, but viewers should expect to see him fill in on different hours beginning as early as next week. “We are thrilled to welcome Craig to MSNBC’s dayside team,” said MSNBC President Phil Griffin in a press release. “He’s smart, loves the business and will be a great addition to the team.”
Melvin’s fiancee, Lindsay Czarniak, also just left WRC for a job at ESPN in Bristol, CT. He tells our sister blog TVSpy, “Making the move to be near my new wife was paramount. We decided living in different cities wasn’t the best way to start a marriage.”
“I’ll start by offering my apologies for some of the words that I said during the four days in May that Men’s Journal was invited to my house to discuss what the NFL has recently been portraying as their attempts at ‘player safety’ rules and regulations, and to cover my everyday workout routine.
I did make comments about my teammates when I was talking about the emotional Super Bowl loss, but the handful of words that were used and heavily publicized yesterday were pulled out of a long conversation and the context was lost. Obviously, I would never say that it was all Ben’s or Rashard’s fault that we lost the Super Bowl. That would be ridiculous. Both Ben and Rashard are great players and great teammates. Clearly the entire team bears responsibility for the loss, me included. It was a team effort and a team loss. My teammates know me well, and hopefully understand the things I said were not meant to accuse them of the loss. We all have discussed several things that went wrong in the Super Bowl since that day. What I do apologize for and take full responsibility for is for speaking in such a candid manner to someone outside the team. Read more
Tampa Bay Lightning Steven Stamkos was announced Wednesday as the cover boy for NHL 12 during the league’s annual awards show in Las Vegas. Stamkos, who was second in the league in goals (45) and fifth in points (91) breaks the Blackhawks’ two-year hold on the EA Sports honor. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane graced the last two covers.
“I was a big gamer, especially as a kid,” Stamkos said. “I asked for it every Christmas. You dream of playing in the NHL one day but you never really dream of being on the cover of the NHL video games, especially the most popular one. My friends are just as excited.”
