Rashida Jones Named EP of MSNBC’s ‘Jansing & Co.’

Rashida Jones is joining MSNBC as the executive producer of “Jansing & Company,” Chris Jansing‘s 10amET show.

Jones comes from WIS, the NBC affiliate in Columbia, S.C., where she has been the news director since 2011. She replaces Fedrico Quadrani, who left MSNBC for CNN earlier this year.

“Rashida, a highly-sought after newsroom leader, has always been someone I wanted on our team,” MSNBC VP and executive editor Yvette Miley wrote in an email to MSNBC staffers today. “She is a visionary who understands strategy and how to lead a team to accomplish a goal.”
