Dan Abrams Takes MSNBC Evening Slot; Scarborough Replaces Imus

Dan Abrams will stay in the MSNBC anchor chair in the 9 p.m. slot, instead of managing the cable network's news report, The New York Times reports; that means that Joe Scarborough will remain in the morning position previously occupied by Don Imus.



MSNBC said today that Dan Abrams, who has been the host of a 9 p.m. news hour called “Live with Dan Abrams” temporarily since July, will stay in the job permanently, leaving behind the managerial position he had occupied for a little over a year.


The move means that Joe Scarborough, who moved from prime time to host a show called “Morning Joe,” will be the permanent replacement for Don Imus, who had the morning slot until he was fired in April over racially charged comments.
