  1. Another MSNBC exit...
  2. Where is Kendis?? Still don't know. Where isn't Kendis?? @MSNBCWeekends updated their twitter - no more Kendis there.
  3. Yesterday - Garrett anchored the 1pm hour under the generic MSNBC Reports banner - NOT as MTP Daily.
  4. Tuned in late - Where is MTP Daily?
  5. Chris Jansing is a solid journalist and anchor - a good choice but not an exciting one. Shep, Tom Llamas, or Katty Kay would all be good options, as well.
  6. Wouldn't it be a kick if tonight we found out Kendis Gibson was actually in "The 11th Hour" rehearsals this whole time?!?!?
  7. Brian Williams - a CLASS ACT until the end.
  8. Day 16 of "KendisWatch" - Where has he gone? 2 Days left until Brian bids us adieu - Where will he go? Who will replace him? That is our update for this Tuesday night with our thanks, of course, for being here with us. On behalf of all our colleagues of the networks of NBC News, good night!
  9. As everyone tries desperately to get their farewell messages in on-air right now - I finally looked back at last Thursday's 11th Hour transcript - Yes, MSNBC does post them - and Brian's last day is THIS Thursday night. Transcript: The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, 12/2 - WILLIAMS: Thank you, my friend. Thank you, my friends. I will be taking my leave a week from tonight. This has always been about gentlemen like you, it`s always been about having smart people on this broadcast. So a dumb guy can sit here and return your toast. Thank you. We`ll be talking along the way, Baratunde Thurston, Bill Kristol.
  10. Where is Kendis Gibson?? Not on air since 11/21. Barely on social media (No Kendis, No George, No Tito). Gibson & Reiser Reports gone. Lindsey doing split-shift solo - no mention of Kendis. What Gives MSNBC?? Anything else you need to tell us - Is Kendis following Kasey, Rachel and Brian? If this is a trend - Is it worse for a network to publicly fire their anchor or for another to have their team running for the life boats?
  11. If I heard him correctly...Brian Williams just said he will take his leave one week from tonight. Coincidentally, Canadian sportscaster Brian Williams announced his retirement today after a distinguished five-decade career. Canada's Brian Williams "covered just about every sport imaginable over his remarkable sportscasting career. The Olympics and the CFL were two of his mainstays as a principal studio anchor and longtime host with CBC and later CTV and TSN," according to The Canadian Press.
  12. During "The View" - 6abc just ran a teaser for Action News at noon with Brian Taff that was from last Monday 11/08.
  13. Let me begin with your very own preface - Not trying to be provocative but... 1. I am surprised and pleased by the outpouring for Brian - I am a fan, and agree he made a significant mistake - and paid a significant professional punishment. As is the case in our criminal justice system you do the crime - you do the time. But, after that one hopes to return to their previous life. Not saying what he did was criminal. But, WOW what a show of support in the last 24 hours. AMAZING!! He should be proud - and let us not forget Brian did it without a college degree. 2, Now for my controversial moment - in response to your comment - These values of integrity and judgement you speak of are not only critical for newscasters but for people in general - including presidents, senators, congressmen, governors, mayors, doctors, lawyers, etc. Hello, January 6th calling. If we can look the other way on a twice impeached, one term former president, or a wacky-at best former NYC mayor, or a FL/TX/NY governor or so many others, including their fierce supporters and enablers - then why not forgive the embellishments of a demoted, rehabilitated former network news anchor, who worked hard to keep us informed. One thing for sure - I can't wait for the book tour.
  14. With all due respect to Chris Jansing - and I do agree she has substantial reporting and anchoring skills - I am not sure if she has the gravitas to fill Brian's shoes. With all the changes going on throughout "the networks of NBC News" they will need a commanding presence to lead their flagship news program. And before anyone says it - it is NOT because she is a woman. Chris could easily replace Andrea at noon, when she decides to retire - or fill any number of substantial roles across the many platforms, just not as the face of the network. From a talent perspective - as well as a budgetary one - maybe it is time to pull the plug on CNBC's The News (not exactly a ratings juggernaut) and bring Shep over to MSNBC, if his contract permits. Shep having been "the" news anchor with the Fox NEWS Channel and step down with his credentials, morals and standards still mostly intact was impressive. Additionally, Shep's narrative delivery - although clearly different from Brian's would not alter the 11th Hour vibe greatly. Unlike at some of the other news/talk organizations - the depth of talented journalists, not just talking heads, is great at NBCUniversal and promoting from within would make perfect sense and add the air of continuity - after all, as they say "This is who we are."
