NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Alec Baldwin is heading to MSNBC.
The “30 Rock” star will have a new show – “Up Late with Alec Baldwin” – on the cable network, Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC, announced on Thursday.
“After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field,” Baldwin said in a statement. “I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.”
Alec’s new show will kick off in October.
“I’ve been talking with Alec for a while and can’t wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC,” Griffin said in a statement. “He’s got such passion for ideas and what’s going on in the world - he’s going to be a great addition to our line-up.”
Alec’s new show will air Fridays from 10-11 PM ET on MSNBC.
