NewsOne.com blogger Reverend Al Sharpton is reportedly being lined up to host a nightly talkshow on MSNBC.
Sharpton has guest-hosted MSNBC’s 6pm hour for the last two weeks while regular anchor Cenk Uygur was on vacation, but insiders now tell TV Newser that Sharpton is being considered to permanently take over the position.
A spokeswoman for the Rev. Al Sharpton said there have been “no formal discussions” with MSNBC, but his impressive ratings indicate that he could be a contender for the spot.
“He beat CNBC, CNN and Headline News in the 6 p.m. hour last week, so it’s obvious he has an audience,” she said.
