Rachel Maddow is a well-known broadcaster who is doing a great job, she is known as the Award-winning broadcaster.
Rachel Maddow has been working with MSNBC since 2005, as a television news program host and many wonder if she’s leaving permanently.
Rachel is best described as “The Rachel Maddow Show.” The show airs on MSNBC at 9:00 pm Eastern on Monday nights and is rebroadcast at midnight Eastern.
Maddow has received several accolades, including Emmy Awards for her broadcasting work and in 2021, a Best Spoken Word Album Grammy Award for her book Blowout.
Rachel Maddow returned to the show after a five-week hiatus on April 11. However, it appeared that she might need more time off.
Rachel also announced that she would transition to hosting her show just once a week, starting May 2. She will only host her MSNBC show on Monday nights going forward.
The newly signed contract gives her flexibility to work on other projects for MSNBC as well as NBC, including a film version of her award-winning podcast Bag Man, directed by Ben Stiller.
The program which she hosted for nearly 14 years was the most-watched program on the network. The program regularly draws more than 2 million viewers, going toe-to-toe on most nights with Fox News host Sean Hannity (CNN remains a distant third). The rating reportedly dropped while she previously took some time off the show.
They have announced their show’s new name as “MSNBC Prime on those nights” but have not announced a permanent host to replace Maddow. In the meantime, the network has been featuring the guest hosts like Ali Velshi.
Maddow is expected to return to the network to co-anchor big news nights. She is most likely to be on the air Tuesday, May 17, as part of MSNBC’s coverage of Pennsylvania’s primary election, which features a battle for the open U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey.
It appears that she is currently busy with other projects. While announcing her hiatus earlier, she mentioned that she wanted some time to focus on developing projects for NBC Universal, be it new podcasts or to create a film adaptation of her book and podcast, The Bag Man.
She stated that the interlude gave her time to relax and focus on some other MSNBC projects in the pipeline. She also added that she is pleased with the much-needed break.
Per the source, Rachael Maddow is expected to co-anchor the network’s major news programs.
Rachel is reportedly expected to resume fully by May will scale back her duties at MSNBC, from what had been a five-days-per-week role to hosting only on Mondays.
Her schedule change also seems to be part of her new contract. She recently signed a new pact with NBCUniversal that gives her aegis over a broader range of projects, including podcasts and films.
