Rachel
Maddow

Maddow wowed them as a “news girl” at Amherst, Massachusetts, radio station WRNX and eventually made it to MSNBC, where “The Rachel Maddow Show” steadily grew. And then came the presidency of Donald Trump, for which Maddow is consistently able to light a way through the fog. She immerses herself in the wonky details of whatever has just occurred and weaves those granular bits into a can’t-miss 20-minute full-circle opening segment. Her program has become a go-to for Democratic candidates, and she has at times beaten seemingly untouchable Fox News’ Sean Hannity in the key 25-54 demo, such as March 2019 when her average total audience surpassed Hannity’s 3 million. In 2018, she turned her dogged love of political history into the cable net’s first podcast with “Bag Man,” a gripping, previously untold seven-episode serial on former VP Spiro Agnew.
