*Joy Reid debuted her new 2 p.m. MSNBC show “The Reid Report” on Monday, with former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, former Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison and Motown legend Smokey Robinson as her first guests.
Reid began with domestic politics and the annual National Governors Association conference in D.C., with Crist, a Democrat and Hutchinson, a Republican, on to discuss President Obama and Vice President Biden’s remarks at the conference and the reaction from Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Robinson visited the show to promote Monday’s broadcast of BET Honors.
“Congratulations on your show. I’m really happy to be on the first one,” the singer told Reid.
Missing from the new afternoon lineup was Andrea Mitchell, whose show moved to Noon ET, according to TV Newser. Mitchell told the website last week the move an hour earlier will give her more time to focus on NBC News reporting.
Reid’s premiere was preceded by the 1 p.m. debut of “Ronan Farrow Daily,” hosted by the 26-year-old son of actress Mia Farrow.
