msnbc Live is an American news-talk television program on MSNBC, hosted by Craig Melvin.

Focusing on live news coverage, the program also consists of guest analysis and interviews around the stories of the day, in addition to feature-like stories, in-depth special reports, and The Weather Channel forecasts.

The program airs Saturdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m, and Sundays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m ET.

History[edit]

"MSNBC Live" was the name of several hours of straight news programming on the network (both weekdays and weekends), similar to dayside programming on other cable news channels. Beginning in 2009, MSNBC began to fill in these hours with branded programming during dayside hours. The 2 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday programs are currently the only hours on the network that still carry the "Live" branding, except on holidays, when the name is used once again for generic news coverage. It's also used as fill-in programming when a show ends or is canceled until a new show is ready.
