Ronan Farrow Joins MSNBC, Will Host Weekday Show

RonanFarrowRonan Farrow is joining MSNBC where he will host a new Monday-Friday program for the network. Farrow is a writer and lawyer, and son of actress/humanitarian Mia Farrow and, most likely, film director/actor Woody Allen.

“Ronan has established himself as a provocative, independent journalist capable of challenging people’s assumptions and empowering audiences,” said MSNBC president Phil Griffin in his announcement. “His show will be a game changer for MSNBC, representing a fresh approach to how we deliver news.”

“This is a new generation of news show for a new, more engaged generation of viewers,” says Farrow. “It’s a show about why the news matters to you – and what you can do to be a part of the story.”

He adds, “I’m excited to shake up people’s expectations for cable news. And to get a ton of Twitter followers.” He’s currently slacking with just 133,000 followers.

Farrow is a member of the New York bar, he has written about human rights and foreign policy for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Wall Street Journal, he was a foreign policy official in the first Obama administration, and has been a spokesperson for UNICEF.

“Ronan has packed more experience into his 25 years of life than most people have in a lifetime,” added Griffin.

Farrow’s one-hour show does not yet have a name, time period or launch date.

News of talks between Farrow and MSNBC was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month.
