MSNBC has cancelled Live with Thomas Roberts, its 1 P.M. weekday news program. Roberts had been hosting the two hour news block since MSNBC reshuffled its dayside to include more traditional news programs.
The New York Post’s Page Six first reported the news.
Roberts confirmed the news, writing on Facebook, “I wanted you to hear directly from me… it is true I won’t be keeping my current show weekdays on MSNBC.”
MSNBC is in talks with Roberts to continue having a role at the network. He has been with the network for six years. Throughout that time, Roberts has anchored several shows. Prior to Live, Roberts hosted Way Too Early and before that, MSNBC Live.
For his part, Roberts is “going to spending the holidays with my husband and family.”
