Jossip reports it this morning:
We're hearing MSNBC talking head Tucker Carlson is out the door in what's perhaps one of the biggest, though least surprising, shifts by the network. Meanwhile, FTVLive is reporting that Rita Cosby, who's already taken a backseat role after being removed from her primetime talking head gig, will also be without a home. Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, we hear, will hang on to their seven-figure deals.
When asked by ETP to confirm the report, MSNBC General Manager Dan Abrams said Abrams via email: "We have made no decisions about any possible programming changes."
We shall see what develops.
Update from Abrams: "Reports this morning about Tucker Carlson's status at MSNBC are false. Tucker is a huge talent and incredible asset to the network."
