MSNBC continues to tinker with its on-air lineup, with the latest move shifting a longtime anchor to what appears to be a lower-profile role on the cable nework, TVNewser.com reports.
Contessa Brewer, who has been with MSNBC since 2003 and has anchored the noon (ET) hour for the past year and a half, will no longer be an anchor, according to the report. Her last daily newscast is scheduled for this Friday, Aug. 26.
Brewer will continue to be the host of the weekend documentary series "Caught On Camera," and will begin working on other NBC News and MSNBC projects.
Interim anchors will take over Brewer’s noon spot for now, with a reworked show expected to launch after Labor Day.
The story notes that MSNBC also recently added Craig Melvin to its anchor lineup.
