MSNBC’s announcement came by way of interviews Jones granted to 品种
“She pulls in perspective. She brings in some of the context throughout her discussion,” Jones told Variety. “She knows politics. She knows everything from foreign policy to culture.”
“This is not a show where our hair is on fire and we’re yelling past each other, and we’re creating these manufactured moments of tension,” Jones added in a separate interview to The Times. “I really want the takeaway from this show to be a better understanding of what’s happening in the world.”
In her interview with The Times, Jones also notably said she did not consult with Maddow about who would succeed her.
Before Jones’ interviews with Variety and The Times had published, two people familiar with the matter had told CNN that Wagner had been selected for the prime time slot. An MSNBC spokesperson at the time did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
瓦格纳, a former MSNBC anchor, returned to the network earlier this year as a senior political analyst and guest anchor.
Wagner has also been co-host of Showtime’s “The Circus” and is the author of the 2018 回忆录 “Futureface: A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging.”
