Telemundo’s Diaz-Balart To Replace Chris Jansing on MSNBC

Telemundo anchor Jose Díaz-Balart will anchor MSNBC’s 10 a.m. hour live from Miami, Florida, starting in mid-June, replacing the departing Chris Jansing and her “Jansing & Co.”

Díaz-Balart currently co-anchors Telemundo’s “Noticiero Telemundo” and hosts “Enfoque con José Díaz-Balart,” and will continue to do so, the NBCUniversal-owned cable network said.

“MSNBC is committed to engaging new audiences and communities. To that end, I’ve been talking with José for several months about bringing his voice to MSNBC,” said Phil Griffin, the network’s president, in a prepared statement. “He has a keen understanding of the political landscape and three decades of experience in both broadcast and cable news.”

Díaz-Balart began his career in 1983 and has reported historic events and interviewed major political figures for prestigious news outlets including NBC News and Telemundo. His achievements include being the first journalist to serve as news anchor on two national television networks in Spanish and English on the same day for an entire season.

Jansing is moving to NBC News to become senior White House correspondent in Washington, D.C.
