MSNBC political analyst Alex Wagner is getting her own show, TVNewser has learned.
At some point in the next few months, the channel will debut a new NoonET program hosted by Wagner, who was most recently with the Huffington Post, and before that worked for Politics Daily. Dana Haller, who has been working on special events for the channel, will serve as executive producer.
According to a memo sent to staff by VP and executive editor Yvette Miley obtained by TVNewser, the new program will “feature regular contributors who will explore what’s driving the day’s political stories.” It will replace MSNBC Live, which typically airs in the time period. The channel has had a number of anchors filling in during that time period in recent months, following the daily anchoring departure of Contessa Brewer.
