MSNBC's Meet the Press Daily is soon to become a streaming-exclusive. The show, hosted by Chuck Todd, currently airs on MSNBC at 1 PM ET every weekday, but as it shifts to streaming next month, it will be renamed Meet the Press Now and air daily at 4 PM ET.
Once the switch is made, the network's 1 PM ET hour will be rebranded as MSNBC Reports, with correspondent Chris Jansing as host.
The move to streaming is reflective of NBC's larger investment into its NBC News Now streaming channel, THR reports. As of next month, the NBC News Now daily streaming lineup will include an early programming block (11 AM-1 PM ET) hosted by Morgan Radford and newcomer Vicky Nguyen. Afterwards, news correspondent Aaron Gilchrist will anchor NBC News Now Live from 2-4 PM ET.
“NBC News is the leader in streaming news,” NBC News president Noah Oppenheim said in a statement. “Since our launch, we’ve been committed to delivering the best of NBC News’ journalism, free, to streaming audiences everywhere. Chuck was one of the first broadcast anchors to see the massive potential of streaming and bringing Meet the Press’s daily franchise to NBC News Now reinforces the platform’s status as the destination for news on streaming.”
