MSNBC Ready to Make a Change with Rev. Al Sharpton


TVNewser hears Cenk Uygur may be moved out of the 6pm hour, possibly to be replaced by Al Sharpton. When the host changes happened earlier this year with Keith Olbermann's departure in January, the 6pm hour was simply named “MSNBC Live ” with Uygur as host.

Sharpton has hosted the 6pm show for the last two weeks and this past week, the show was second, to Fox News, in viewers 2
5-54 Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. A spokeswoman for the Rev. Al Sharpton said to NewsOne.com that there have been “no formal discussions” with MSNBC, but his impressive ratings indicate that he could be a contender for the spot. “He beat CNBC, CNN and Headline News in the 6 p.m. hour last week, so it’s obvious he has an audience,” she said.

Insiders tell us that Uygur will remain a part of MSNBC in some capacity. His site, The Young Turks, says Uygur has been on vacation and will return Monday.

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
