Jones

President

Jones has made her mark at MSNBC since taking over the stop slot in February 2021. The veteran NBC News executive shuffled a number of the cabler’s weekend programming blocks in a clear effort to test out new opinion personalities for the liberal-leaning channel. Mika Brzezinski, Nicolle Wallace and Jonathan Capehart have been tapped to produce shows for MSNBC’s The Choice on-demand news channel within Peacock. Jones closed a $30 million deal to secure Rachel Maddow as the anchor of MSNBC’s primetime lineup through the 2024 presidential election, but a new production deal being inked with Maddow could see those commitments scaled back, adding to the challenge of determining the network’s nightly schedule throughout 2022 now that longtime host Brian Williams is set to exit MSNBC.
