Over the weekend, Page Six reported that MSNBC had “quietly” cancelled its Live with Thomas Roberts TV show after almost two years. The two-hour weekday news show replaced Ronan Farrow Daily, which the cable news channel cancelled back in 2015, after just one year.
Roberts has since confirmed the cancellation on his official Facebook page, adding that the last episode of Live with Thomas Roberts aired on MSNBC, on Thursday, December 15th.
Live with Thomas Roberts TV Series Cancelled by MSNBC
Because social media posts sometimes disappear, here is the full text of Roberts’ Facebook announcement that the show is cancelled.
I wanted you to hear directly from me…it is true I won’t be keeping my current show weekdays on MSNBC. My last show was Thursday.
My colleagues are incredible people…and I am so proud of our team and our accomplishments. It is always a special blessing when co-workers become close friends and family. We achieved that bond and our hard work was recently honored by winning an Emmy in 2016 for Breaking News coverage of last year’s Supreme Court decision on Marriage Equality. I can’t thank my colleagues enough for years of their dedication to me and our show.
Also, a BIG thanks to the viewers who’ve been supporters of our coverage at MSNBC. Hearing from you (whether positive or negative) is always an important thing for me.
So what’s next? Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I am going to be spending the holidays with my husband and family.
From our family to yours…
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year,
What do you think? Are you disappointed that MSNBC has cancelled the Live with Thomas Roberts TV series? Will you keep watching MSNBC in the afternoons, or change the channel? Let us know, below.
MSNBC is turning into FOX. They hire Greta Van Susteren and NBC hires Megyn Kelly. Phil Griffin is step by step killing the network I loved. From now on I will only watch Hayes, Maddow and O’Donnell at night and the hell with the rest of the pathetic line up.
