THE REV. AL SHARPTON TO HOST NEW MSNBC TV SHOW: It's official: The Rev. Al Sharpton has been chosen to be a permanent host on MSNBC weeknights. His program is called "Politics Nation" and will air at 6 p.m. ET. It premieres next Monday.
For years, the civil rights activist has shared his opinion about politics along with leading coalitions against injustices. He calls the show "a natural extension of my life's work and growth."
On the show, Sharpton will lead discussions on the day's top headlines. His new television show is actually a very significant step, as it takes place during the network's prime hours and leads into other heavily watched shows.
In the past, Sharpton has served as a guest host on different MSNBC programs.
"I've known Rev. Sharpton for over a decade and have tremendous respect for him," said MSNBC President Phil Griffin. "I'm thrilled that he's now reached a point in his career where he's able to devote himself to hosting a nightly show."
The AP points out that last year Sharpton weighed in on behalf of the Philadelphia-based Comcast Corp. as the government scrutinized the company's ultimately successful takeover of NBC Universal. Sharpton, the head of the National Action Network civil rights group, was among other minority representatives approached by Comcast executives for their support. MSNBC is part of NBC Universal.
