MSNBC is a news, politics and documentary network in the United States. Launched in 1996 as a partnership between Microsoft and General Electric-owned NBC, the channel is available today in 95.5 million households. MSNBC also has partnerships with channels internationally, including MSNBC Canada, CNBC Asia and The Armed Forces Network.
MSNBC has traditionally offered a left-leaning perspective on the news, although beginning in 2015, the network has shifted its scheduling from opinionated programming to hard news and reporting, particularly during the daytime. As part of its shift to hard news, MSNBC put many of the well-known NBC News journalists from parent company NBC on its daytime schedule.
MSNBC's current schedule, as of January 2016, includes a morning show, "Morning Joe," hosted by Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist. During the daytime, MSNBC airs "MSNBC Live," which shifts hosts each hour. During prime time, MSNBC airs its more opinionated programming, beginning with "Hardball with Chris Matthews," followed by "All in with Chris Hayes" and "The Rachel Maddow Show." MSNBC ends its daily programming with "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell."
