Maddow

Host

Maddow started out in broadcasting as a “news girl” at WRNX, a small radio station in Amherst, Massachusetts. These days, her never-miss-a-beat “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC is often number one in all of primetime cable, even though the program is 10 years in. As headlines continue to generate around Donald Trump, Maddow is consistently able to light a way through the fog. She immerses herself in the wonky details of whatever she may be examining and then weaves those granular bits into a colorful tale of national import, one she often tells in her mammoth 20-minute full-circle opening segment. This newfound dominance has made her a key player at MSNBC, as thanks in part to Maddow’s show, the network has posted year-over-year total growth.
