A live, twice-daily show co-hosted by Ron Reagan and Monica Crowley, “Connected: Coast to Coast,” will premiere at noon and 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, on MSNBC.

The two hours of programming each weekday represent “part of the new era of political talk on cable–smart, respectful and engaging,” said MSNBC President Rick Kaplan.

The subjects will range from politics to pop culture, with an emphasis on online news and buzz.

Ms. Crowley will originate from MSNBC headquarters in New Jersey, while Mr. Reagan, who gained many fans with his contributions to MSNBC’s election coverage, will originate from MSNBC.com’s Redmond, Wash., headquarters.

The plan is for the second of each day’s hours to incorporate viewers’ questions and comments into the discussion.
