MSNBC Host Mehdi Hasan to Leave Network

Mehdi Hasan announced his final departure from MSNBC on Sunday night, one year after the network made the announcement of terminating his late night opinion program.

“I’ve decided that it’s time for me to look for a new challenge. Tonight is not just my final episode of ‘The Mehdi Hasan Show.’ It’s my last day with MSNBC. Yes, I’ve decided to leave.” he said.

“It’s been an absolute blast during this live show on MSNBC for the past three years with an amazing team of producers behind me. And with all of you watching at home, it’s been a privilege. It’s been a pleasure. But as we begin 2024 with an election coming, a war still ongoing and too many Trump trials honestly to even keep track of, and with this show going away, I’ve decided that it’s time for me to look for a new challenge.” he continued.

In November, MSNBC informed its personnel that Hasan’s Sunday night opinion program would be discontinued as a component of a more extensive restructuring of the network’s weekend schedule.

His time position will be occupied by Ayman Mohyeldin’s second hour of performance.

Hasan had initially intended to continue his affiliation with the network in a capacity as a substitute presenter and on-camera analyst subsequent to the cancellation of his program.

The network first hired Hasan in 2021 to host its Sunday evening program.
