MSNBC Sets Nicolle Wallace at 4 P.M. Hour

Nicolle Wallace has made a name for herself at MSNBC as a political analyst who comes with chops hard-won from the George W. Bush administration and the John McCain presidential campaign. Now, she will try to stand out hosting the cable-news outlet’s 4 p.m. hour.

The NBCUniversal-owned outlet said Wallace will help to expand a late-day block that focuses on politics. Her hour is followed by Chuck Todd’s “MTP Daily,” Greta van Susteren’s “For the Record” and Chris Matthews’ “Hardball.” Wallace is expected to cover political developments and deliver interviews with newsmakers. MSNBC said Steve Kornacki will have presence in the hour, where he has recently held forth.

MSNBC said Wallace will continue to appear frequently on NBC News’ “Today” as a political analyst, and will contribute special reports to the show. She will also serve as a fill-in host for MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams.”

“Nicolle played a huge role for us during the presidential election and through the first 100 days. We’re thrilled she’s stepping into this spot with Steve at her side,” said Phil Griffin, resident of MSNBC, in a prepared statement.

“There’s never been a more exciting or stunning time in American politics, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have a daily conversation with our viewers about every dramatic twist and turn,” Wallace said in a statement. “I’m humbled by all of the opportunities MSNBC and NBC News have given me to report on the 2016 campaign and its ripple effects.”

Wallace, a former panelist on ABC’s “The View,”  contributed regularly to both NBC News and MSNBC during the 2016 presidential election, including the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, President Donald Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress, and other major national stories.
