MSNBC host Rachel Maddow announced she will host her eponymous television show only on Mondays starting in May, she told viewers on her first night back from a hiatus.
MSNBC’s top personality shared the news on Monday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” her first time back in prime time since she returned from a two-month hiatus.
Until the end of April, Maddow will host the 9 p.m. slot on MSNBC on Mondays to Thursdays, the Times reported.
We'll have to wait and see how things turn out, but for the time being, that's the plan, Maddow assured her audience.
Maddow said that she would continue to work on other projects. She took a break from her show to work on podcasts and feature films as part of a deal with NBCUniversal.
“One of the things I realized to my surprise is that I actually don’t need another hiatus,” she said Monday night. “This one was great. But I think I only needed the one.
My other irons are still in the fire, and I still have a slew of other projects in the works that I hope to see through to completion. "
The announcement of Maddow's new schedule comes on the heels of a recent reorganisation of MSNBC's show programming.
