Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie, NBC News' two White House Correspondents, are launching a 9AM show on MSNBC called "Daily Rundown," the Washington Post's Howard Kurtz reports.
The show will follow "Morning Joe;" Dylan Ratigan's show, "Morning Meeting," will become "The Dylan Ratigan Show" and move to 4PM to lead in to "Hardball."
The show "fits the rhythm of our day," Todd — who is the network's Chief White House Correspondent as well as its political director — told Kurtz. He envisions the show as "something that has the feel of a signature Washington show for us."
"Chuck and I have a great relationship, and we're hoping it will translate on the air," Guthrie told Kurtz. "It's a matter of making all the pieces fit together."
"Chuck and Savannah are fantastic reporters and it speaks to the tremendous advantage MSNBC has, to have access to the resources of NBC News, and to be able to use their knowledge and expertise in a daily show," MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in an announcement. "I'm also thrilled to have Dylan move to the afternoons, where his analysis of politics and the economy and his tough interviews will be a great companion to 'Hardball.'"
Todd was seen as a contender for David Gregory's job as moderator of "Meet the Press."
David Shuster and Tamron Hall, who have anchored 3-5PM, will remain anchors on MSNBC dayside.
