    From the vantage point of someone inside the industry, it appears as though MSNBC is trying for this: personality-driven "angles" on the news of the day. Allow me to explain...

    Ali Velshi is now the face of business news at the network, Hallie Jackson is the face of on-site political coverage, Morning Joe is the face(s) of insidery-ish government dealings, Greta will be the face of legal coverage, Andrea Mitchell is the face of foreign affairs, and so on... with BriWi at the helm of it all (kind of). Several different angles and vantage points on the dominant political story of a generation: Trump's governance.

    That's what Phil Griffin is going for, and it seems to be working, albeit for the jacked-up scheduling and random appearances on air.

    NO based on legal grounds and obscenity laws.

    I wonder about chris Jansing and if she is returning to anchoring. Sounds like a big demotion for Kelly O'Donnell like they are just switching Kasie Hunt for her.

    There's a 20 year age difference between Kelly and Kasie. Sad to think but true.

    MSNBC truly seems prepared to move forward with a good mix of news and opinion. The mix of Joe/Mika & Greta with Chris Matthews & Rachel, as well as Lawrence. The former road warriors in their new positions further enhance the news operation. I think we now see a truly "Fair & Balanced" cable news channel. Now, hopefully, the viewers will give MSNBC a chance and ratings will soar.

    Chris Jansing changed her twitter and put former NBC News Senior White House Correspondent. I wonder if she is going back full time to MSNBC as an Anchor.

    I wonder if Chris Jansing will get the 3pm hour of MSNBC LIVE now that Kate Snow is going back full time to NBC News. Ali seems to be the 11am hour anchor.

    With Rachel Maddow doing pretty well in the ratings lately from what I've heard, and the way the political climate is today and the types of presenters they bring on, MSNBC could very well be in the right position to do better than they used to. Certainly among left-leaning viewers, but as a friend suggested when we were discussing Megyn Kelly's move to NBC (and I'm sure she'll make appearances on MSNBC as well, if she doesn't get her own show again eventually), maybe even among centrists and moderate Republicans with the addition of a few former FNC personalities.
