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 2-4pm ET, and Sundays from 3-4pm ET. In late 2014, the program's anchor Craig Melvin was reassigned, seeing the end of the program. Caught on 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 from 1-3pm ET under the Live branding, beginning on March 2.

An additional 3 hours of MSNBC Live debuted on August 3, 2015, airing from 3-6pm ET, replacing the cancelled The Cycle, Now with Alex Wagner, & The Ed Show.

Thomas Roberts anchors the 1-3 pm block while Kate Snow anchors the 3-5 pm block. Rotating hosts are currently filling in with MSNBC Live in the 6pm ET hour until a permanent host is determined. When a story is deemed as breaking news, MSNBC producers have the discretion to replace any anchor with Breaking News Anchor Brian Williams.

On October 5th, 2015, Jose Diaz-Balart's morning program, 'The Daily Rundown,' and Tamron Hall's show of five years, 'NewsNation', were reverted back to the 'Live' branding, airing at 9am ET and 11amET, respectively.

Currently, MSNBC Live airs from 9am-12pm, 1-5pm ET and 6-7pm ET each weekday.


"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. During the network's pivot back to hard news in 2015, the name returned during daytime hours. The brand is also used during holidays and as as fill-in programming when a show ends or is canceled until a new show is ready.
