The show airs at 6 p.m. daily and while Sharpton has been hosting the show for some time now, his official tenure begins on August 29th.
The Huffington Post reports:
“I am very happy and honored to join the MSNBC team as we collectively try to get America to ’Lean Forward,’” Sharpton said in a statement. “It is a natural extension of my life work and growth. We all learn from our pain and stand up from our stumbling and one must either learn to lean forward or fall backwards. I’m glad they have given me the opportunity to continue my forward lean.”
