Political Analyst Alex Wagner to Host New NoonET Show on MSNBC

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.

When is Martin Bashir’s show going to debut?

Martin Bashir who left ABC News for MSNBC last June is still waiting in the wings at the peacock cable network.

Bashir joined MSNBC in September. In November, Bob Morrissey who worked with Bashir at ABC, signed on to be EP of the show and it was thought the show would hit the air before the end of the year.

Now, we’ve learned the 3pmET program “will debut in the next several weeks.” That’s according to a top MSNBC source. That’s still a little vague, so if he’s not on the air by Feb. 7, then we’ll start to wonder. In the meantime, Thomas Roberts has been filling in at 3pm.

Bashir, who was at yesterday’s NBC News/MSNBC upfront, seated next to MSNBC executive editor Yvette Miley contributed to MSNBC during the royal engagement. He’s also signed on to work on stories for “Dateline.”

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall will host the discussion, which will include participation from actor/activist Hill Harper and other widely known figures in the Black community.

“Education is the foundation upon which to build a better you, better communities and a better world for all of us,” said Yvette Miley, Executive Editor of MSNBC.

MSNBC Exec Shannon High Leaving for Peacock Productions

Shannon High, who joined MSNBC nearly three years ago as managing editor of the news network’s daytime and weekend programming and who last summer moved to launching and overseeing Dylan Ratigan‘s show, is leaving dayside.

Sources tell TVNewser High is moving to NBC News’ Peacock Productions which produces original and re-purposed programs for MSNBC and outside clients.

High was brought in in September 2007 after a career in local news, most recently VP at Miami’s CBS duopoly WFOR/WBFS. Less than two years into her MSNBC appointment, she was effectively replaced by another local news alum, longtime NBC staffer Yvette Miley who oversaw news at Miami’s WTVJ-NBC6.

High’s time with Ratigan has been described by a source as “turbulent.” TVNewser hears a formal announcement is expected next week.
