MSNBC is shuffling executives as it continues to search for a cure for its low ratings. The New York Post reports that NBC News boss Andy Lack “is expected to name Senior Vice President Janelle Rodriguez to a new position running all of its daytime lineup,” with the official announcement expected as soon as today.
“MSNBC President Phil Griffin has been in charge of ‘dayside’ programming, along with Managing Editor Rashida Jones. Rodriguez will handle those daytime duties, reporting to both Griffin and NBC News President Deborah Turness,” the Post reports.
The cable channel also reportedly continues to try to lure back Keith Olbermann to do political commentary. “Olbermann had declined an earlier offer in December to return, in part because of the small salary involved,” the Post notes.
