MSNBC and the Times Team Up for New Political Show

The Times and MSNBC are joining forces for a new cable show. Today is the debut of The New York Times Special Primary Edition, a new political show hosted by John Harwood where Times-journos will handicap the election. From a Times memo, it appers these shows will appear as specials–that is, they won’t run every week, but whenever MSNBC and the paper choose to do it.

Today’s program will preview the Indiana and North Carolina primaries and Adam Nagourney, Pat Healy and Gail Collins are included guests.

Here’s the memo:
