My peeps at Mediaite tracked down an MSNBC rep and got the scoop. While Carlos Watson will remain part of the staff his show is “no mas.”
Mediaite has learned that Carlos Watson, anchor of MSNBC’s 11 a.m. weekday show, “Live with Carlos Watson,” will no longer be anchoring that hour on the network. An MSNBC spokesperson confirmed the rumor, which we learned via Mediaite columnist Danielle Belton on her website, The Black Snob. MSNBC spokesperson Alana Russo said that yes, Watson’s hour had been canceled, but that he will remain a contributor with MSNBC. She also said that there is no replacement scheduled for the 11 a.m. slot, which will be covered by the MSNBC dayside anchor team.
