WHAT’S MSNBC PLANNING FOR WEEKENDS?

MSNBC has put up a job listing looking for a weekend AM EP.
“The Executive Producer will supervise and oversee the editorial vision of a new morning show,” the job posting reads.

For the moment anyway, MSNBC’s weekend morning lineup is a mix of news and opinion.

On Saturdays, Hugh Hewitt airs at 8 a.m. ET, followed by 90 minutes of news, then two hours of “AM Joy” hosted by Joy Reid.

On Sundays, Al Sharpton‘s show airs at 8 a.m., followed by an hour of news, then, again, two hours of “AM Joy.”

All three hosts come with more than their share of baggage.

Hewitt, a conservative,  was recently given a verbal warning for not disclosing his business connections to embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt.

Reid, a progressive, has a phantom blog that keeps spitting out ancient posts Reid swears were not written by her.

Or she apologizes for them.

It really depends on the time of day and the day of the week.

And Al Sharpton is…Al Sharpton.

MSNBC is in zipped-lip mode at the moment.

But given that lineup, they could use something else.
