Ronan Farrow Reportedly To Become MSNBC Correspondent: New York Post


There were new reports on Wednesday about Ronan Farrow's future role at MSNBC.

The New York Post said that Farrow, the son of famed actress Mia Farrow, will become a correspondent. "They’re just finalizing the contract," a source told the New York Post. "Ronan is not going to get his own show off the bat, but they are going to develop him, have him work on stories and build his TV news credentials. He’ll work across the whole lineup. He’s 25, everybody knows he’s very bright, but he’s not getting his own show — yet."

The report drew comparisons to Anderson Cooper, who is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt and who was also a correspondent before getting his own show.

The story comes after speculation in October that MSNBC was about to sign a deal with Farrow. Wednesday's report, however, contradicts earlier rumors that Farrow would be hosting a show on the weekends.
