MSNBC Live is an American news-talk television program on MSNBC.

Focusing on live news coverage, the program 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 aired at various times through the years, but most recently aired Saturdays from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m, and Sundays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m ET. In late 2014, the program's anchor Craig Melvin was reassigned, seeing the end of the program. Caught of Camera now airs in its place.

Following major changes to MSNBC's dayside lineup announced in February 2015, Thomas Roberts was appointed to a new weekday time slot under the Live branding, beginning on March 2. MSNBC Live airs from 1-3pm ET each weekday.

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 show no longer regularly airs, 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.

Anchors and contributors[edit]

International broadcasts[edit]
