MSNBC is mulling a shakeup that would give Chuck Todd a morning slot and bring in Fox News fugitive Shepard Smith—if, that is, the network can snag him.
"It's unclear what slot he would take, but we'd want him in prime-time,” says an MSNBC source. "We are well aware [Jeff] Zucker [president of CNN] is also pursuing him, as are a number of the networks." If Smith picks MSNBC, Chuck Todd's 5pm show MTP Daily might take its low ratings to a 9am slot, as the New York Post recently reported. But word is Todd doesn't want it, and his staff isn't thrilled at the prospect of a demanding morning time slot. (Last year, Smith opened his wallet to fight "garbage and lies.")
