Michael Steele joins MSNBC

Ex-RNC chair tapped for political analyst role

MSNBC has tapped former Republican National Convention chairman Michael Steele to serve as a political analyst on the net.

Steele joins the Peacock’s news cabler effective immediately. The politico has also worked in a similar role for Fox News Channel.

“I’m thrilled to have Michael join MSNBC,” said MSNBC prexy Phil Griffin. “His strong voice and opinions will be a great addition to all of our programs.”

Steele was the first African-American to hold the position of RNC chariman. The former lieutenant governor of Maryland was elected to the chairmanship in 2009 and re-elected for the 2010 term, but was defeated for 2011 by former Wisconsin GOP party chair Reince Priebus.

During his chairmanship and after it, Steele has been a regular presence on MSNBC and elsewhere.

“I look forward to engaging a diverse audience to share insights and analysis about the people, issues, and events shaping America’s future,” Steele said.
