shift by msnbc

Recommended Posts

Today msnbc launched a new online network called shift. From what I've read shift will be used by msnbc to cultivate new talent and contributors so they can grow their skills and maybe get a shot at contributing on msnbc.

 

My internet connection is spotty right now but from what I have seen it appears there will be different schedules each day.

Didn't expect this; there was no warning. Almost seems like their attempt at a counterpart to CBSN. It does fit the network, considering they started with internet in their DNA.

Does anyone else think 'shift' is a bad name? I can see the potential for some gaffes.

Their tagline/hashtag is #shifthappens, so yes, someone's gonna screw up.

Looking back I guess I should have guessed that they were going to start producing an online video channel. On election night msnbc ran a looser election return show with Krystal Ball and Ari Melber from The Cycle.

 

I kind of was expecting that the production of the show would be automated but by some Instagram posts it appears the are using a full control room.

Forget the gaffes. They pretty much handed the haters a ready-made pejorative.
