MSNBC is parting ways with a host who has had a show on the cable news channel for four years. The channel confirmed Sunday that it is calling it quits with Melissa Harris-Perry, The New York Times reports.

Harris-Perry has hosted a weekend news and opinion show on the channel since 2012. The confirmation of her departure comes after a few weeks of turbulence in her relationship with MSNBC.

“Two days after an email became public in which Ms. Harris-Perry said she felt ‘worthless’ to NBC News executives, and after two weeks of her show being pre-empted so that the network could cover other news, an MSNBC spokesman on Sunday confirmed that the network and Ms. Harris-Perry were ‘parting ways,'” The Times reports.

The report adds: “Ms. Harris-Perry said in an email on Sunday that she was not in direct communication with anyone at the network but that ‘terms of severance, not reconciliation’ were still being negotiated.”
