August 24, 2011 at 4:30 AM (PT)
Community activist and SYNDICATION ONE talk host Rev. AL SHARPTON has been officially named host of MSNBC's nightly "POLITICS NATION."
SHARPTON, whose addition to the MSNBC lineup has been widely rumored for several weeks, will appear nightly at 6p (ET), is taking over the slot left open when fellow syndicated talk host ED SCHULTZ's "THE ED SHOW" moved to 10p (ET). Former radio host CENK UYGUR hosted the 6p hour until leaving recently in an acrimonious split with the cable news channel.
