Journalist / TV Host

Maddow has had a busy year covering COVID-19, systemic racism and the presidential election, but it’s paid off: “The Rachel Maddow Show” continues to average high ratings and has beat CNN’s “AC 360” in its time slot. Her interviews with indicted Trump associate Lev Parnas and the president’s niece Mary Trump also broke ratings records in 2020, with the latter averaging 5.2 million viewers — the most ever for her show or any regularly scheduled MSNBC show. An admitted politics wonk, Maddow is also a successful author, with “Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia and the Richest, Most Destructive Industry on Earth,” debuting atop the New York Times bestseller list in 2019, and, more recently, “Bag Man,” which released in December 2020 and is based on her podcast with the same name. Among her many honors are a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding TV journalism.
