(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to entertainment reports, Chuck Todd’s “Meet the Press Daily” is being moved to a streaming-only format and renamed “Meet the Press Now” by MSNBC and NBC. MSNBC’s 1 p.m. hour will now be titled “MSNBC Reports” and hosted by veteran anchor Chris Jansing.
President of NBC News Noah Oppenheim stated that NBC News was the leader in streaming news. Chuck was one of the first broadcast anchors to recognize the immense potential of streaming, and bringing Meet the Press’ daily franchise to NBC News NOW solidifies the platform’s position as the destination for streaming news.
According to a report, Chuck Todd’s “Meet The Press” has reached its lowest ratings since he took over the Sunday morning program.
According to recent Nielsen Media Research ratings, the number has dwindled to a meager 2.4 million, shedding a third of the anchor’s viewership. Todd’s ratings with the younger 25-54 demographic have been in free fall to make matters worse for the Peacock network and its executive.
The report shows that at his peak, the man who former President Trump referred to as “sleepy eyes” had over 1.2 million viewers in the first quarter of 2017, the same period in which he had 4 million viewers overall. However, over the past three months, the star NBC political analyst garnered only 492,000 fans in the all-important younger demographic.
A source told Radar Online that this looks bad for Chuck. Chuck lost his job at MSNBC, claiming he would rather leave MSNBC entirely and concentrate on Meet the Press on Sunday.
Reports show NBC News president Noah Oppenheim is leaving as part of a significant restructuring of the company’s leadership.
The announcement was made by NBCUniversal News Group Chairman Cesar Conde, who stated that the appointments of Rebecca, Libby, and Janelle provide a strong foundation for the News Group as it continues to expand its leadership. NBC News, CNBC, and MSNBC reach more Americans than any other news organization, thanks to our numerous programs and platforms delivering the highest quality journalism in the United States and worldwide.
Sure. Then why all the poor ratings and ‘shake-ups’?
