Reid, who’s the managing editor of TheGrio as well as a rising star at the network via her roles as an contributor/analyst and fill-in host, will host a show at 2pm Est. that is so far unnamed.
*Farrow, the son actress Mia Farrow and actor/director/writer/producer Woody6 Allen, joined the network in October, is taking the 1pm EST timeslot with a show that also is unnamed at this point.
“Ronan and Joy are two of the most thoughtful and impressive journalists out there and I’m excited for what they will bring to the afternoon,” MSNBC’s president Phil Griffin wrote in a statement.
Lest we not forget these other moves that will go down. Tamron Hall’s program is moving to 11am EST, while Andrea Mitchell will take over the noon slot from Alex Wagner’s old show which is moving to 4pm.

11 AM – NewsNation with Tamron Hall
Noon – Andrea Mitchell Reports
