Saw this on Twitter, thought it'd be relevant to share here.
Buried at the bottom of a piece on MSNBC's Election Night performance, the New York Times is suggesting that Washington Post blogger and MSNBC analyst Ezra Klein could be getting a new show and possibly at Ed Schultz's expense.
In the last two years, MSNBC has added Mr. Sharpton’s show at 6 p.m. and four round-table talk shows, two on weekday afternoons and two on weekend mornings. Mr. Griffin said he wanted to add more political programming on the weekends, replacing hours of prison documentaries that earn solid ratings but muddy the channel’s identity.Would be an interesting show, I enjoy Klein when he's guest hosting for Rachel Maddow or on MSNBC in general.
Several MSNBC employees, who spoke about programming plans on the condition of anonymity, said the most likely candidate for a new show was the Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein, a frequent substitute for Ms. Maddow. Mr. Klein may start with a weekend time slot, but these people said the 8 p.m. weekday time slot held by Mr. Schultz was also a possibility.
