It appears that MSNBC host Joy Reid may no longer have a show on the network this spring following a round of reshuffling.
President of News Cycle Media Jon Nicosia announced the news on Twitter, writing that a Comcast source said "Joy Reid will lose her 7p show in the next round of reshuffling at MSNBC," according to a source at Comcast.
"She does not have a show come mid Spring," the source reportedly added. "decision has been made, the only thing left is messaging on the move, which will be ratings."
Nicosia continued on to state that while Reid "has allied at Comcast," she is now viewed as being "unmanageable" by many.
"Also, similar to Cuomo, it appears those allies have found out she has been 'less than truthful about past incidents,'" wrote Nicosia, alluding to last month’s firing of popular CNN host Chris Cuomo, after it was revealed that he was more intimately involved in helping his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, through his sexual assault scandal.
Overall, MSNBC's weekday prime-time viewership dropped by 25 percent in 2021, with Reid’s ratings steadily plummeting throughout the year.
According to Nielsen data, The Reidout started the year with an average of 2,592,000 viewers. By November though, that number of viewers had dropped to 1,129,000.
