“Up” is on too early for me regardless of who hosts it. I think it should have been co-hosted by Joy Reid and Ari Melber, myself. Kornacki is already co-hosting a show, which obviously prepared him for “Up”. Maybe now Ari or Joy will end up as a regular on The Cycle now.
But what do I know?
MSNBC has named Steve Kornacki the new host of its weekend morning show Up.
Kornacki, previously a co-host of MSNBC’s The Cycle, replaces Chris Hayes who had hosted the show since 2011. Hayes will move into MSNBC’s weekday 8 pm slot beginning April 1, while Ed Schultz begins a new weekend evening program, the company announced last week in a series of programming changes.
Up airs Saturdays and Sundays from 8 to 10 am Et.
All the best, Steve, knock ‘em dead!
