MSNBC on Friday quietly pulled the plug on its afternoon show, “Live With Thomas Roberts,” after less than two years, the New York Post has exclusively learned.
Roberts was brought on to do the two-hour show last year to replace the much-hyped but low-rated “Ronan Farrow Daily.”
“Thomas was taken off of his [show] quietly,” said a news insider.
“They’re not going to announce it, but he’s gone. His last day was Friday.”
Another source close to the anchor explained, “Thomas is in discussions to take on a new role with MSNBC in 2017.”
The ill-fated time slot will now transition to a “rotation of anchors” at the network.
