Report Tags Nicolle Wallace as Replacement for Maddow’s MSNBC Slot

MSNBC show host Nicolle Wallace is being considered to take over the political news channel’s time slot occupied by eponymous anchor Rachel Maddow when the latter transitions from a nightly to a weekly program, a report indicated Wednesday.

Wallace, a former spokeswoman for President George W. Bush and host of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” show, is the favorite to assume the channel’s 9 p.m. position when Maddow leaves, according to Dylan Byers, the recently departed NBC media correspondent who left for the startup Puck News.

“The idea that a former Republican operative could replace a progressive icon like Maddow will surely confound and even anger some MSNBC loyalists,” Byers wrote. “But from the vantage point of NBC’s C-suite, it has its logic. Wallace is smart, capable, charismatic —’producible,’ as one former NBC executive put it. No one should underestimate how important that is in television, even to a network that caters to liberal political sensibilities.”
