THR: MSNBC Eyes Ronan Farrow As Potential Host

MSNBC is talking to journalist and human rights activist Ronan Farrow about potentially hosting a program for the channel, THR’s Marisa Guthrie reports.

MSNBC declined to comment on the report.

Farrow is the son of actress Mia Farrow and director Woody Allen. He was in the news just this morning, as journalist Maureen Orth (wife of the late Tim Russert) told Matt Lauer that Mia Farrow suggested that Frank Sinatra may be Ronan’s real father.
