So, answering the call, the network announced yesterday that regular MSNBC political pundit Karen Finney will be hosting her own afternoon weekend show, from 4-5PM (Eastern time) on the network.
Finney was previously the first African American spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton, currently a columnist for both The Hill and Politico, and has been a regular fixture on MSNBC as a commentator and occasional guest host, since 2009.
Phil Griffin, who is the president of the network said in a statement, announcing the new show, that: “Karen’s rich background in
both education policy and politics will add a unique point of view to our
expanding live weekend programming.”
When Finney's new show will premiere and what it will be called, will be announced in a few weeks.
