Journalist / TV Host

That’s kicked off some speculation about the fate of her long running MSNBC program, “The Rachel Maddow Show,” which has been on since 2008 and features her analytical, diligent reporting.

At MSNBC, Maddow has also found success in other ventures such as “Bag Man,” a seven-episode podcast series centered on former U.S. VP Spiro Agnew and 2018 documentary special “Betrayal,” which covered the 1968 presidential election.
