A show that is one of the flagship series for a small cable channel has been canceled. Variety reports that Pivot pulled the plug on “TakePart Live,” just two months after making changes to bolster the program.
The live talk show was meant to get the network’s millennial viewers engaged in current affairs. The report notes that no reason was given for the cancellation and no end date was specified.
The show was hosted by Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, and Jacob Soboroff, from “HuffPost Live.” In October, Baratunde Thurston came on board, as well.
In a statement, the network said it was working with the hosts to find a different way for them to remain with the network.
Pivot’s founding president Evan Shapiro, who had championed the show, left the network in November for NBCUniversal.
