Posting on his Facebook page, Roberts wrote “I wanted you to hear directly from me…it is true I won’t be keeping my current show weekdays on MSNBC. My last show was Thursday.”
Roberts, who took the daytime slot after the cancellation of Ronan Farrow Daily, did not indicate his plans, or whether he’s staying with MSNBC. “So what’s next?,” he wrote. “Stay tuned!”
Here’s Roberts’ statement:
“I wanted you to hear directly from me…it is true I won’t be keeping my current show weekdays on MSNBC. My last show was Thursday.
My colleagues are incredible people…and I am so proud of our team and our accomplishments. It is always a special blessing when co-workers become close friends and family. We achieved that bond and our hard work was recently honored by winning an Emmy in 2016 for Breaking News coverage of last year’s Supreme Court decision on Marriage Equality. I can’t thank my colleagues enough for years of their dedication to me and our show.
Also, a BIG thanks to the viewers who’ve been supporters of our coverage at MSNBC. Hearing from you (whether positive or negative) is always an important thing for me.
So what’s next? Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I am going to be spending the holidays with my husband and family.
From our family to yours…
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & Happy New Year”
