MSNBC‘s revamped weekend lineup that now includes Ed Schultz is starting to take shape. Political analyst Karen Finney has been named host for a new weekend show that will air from 4-5 PM, the cable news network said today. The former Democratic National Committee spokesperson has been a contributor and guest host on MSNBC since 2009, and she also was deputy press secretary to then-First Lady Hillary Clinton and deputy director of presidential scheduling for President Clinton. Finney’s new show, which doesn’t have a name yet, will serve as a lead-in to Schultz’s new weekend show that will air from 5-7 PM. “Karen’s rich background in both education policy and politics will add a unique point of view to our expanding live weekend programming,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said today. Previously, Steve Kornacki, co-host of the weekday afternoon show The Cycle, was tapped to step into Chris Hayes’ weekend slot as host of Up, which airs Saturdays and Sundays from 8-10 AM ET. Hayes was moved to Schultz’s primetime slot — his new show All In debuted last night in the 8 PM slot.
