Stephanie Ruhle will step in as the next host of The 11th Hour, a position previously held by Brian Williams. MSNBC President Rashida Jones shared the news on Thursday.
“[Ruhle will be] bringing her business acumen, hard-hitting interview style and original reporting to the viewers in that slot,” MSNBC President Rashida Jones said, according to NBC News.
“Since joining MSNBC in 2016, Stephanie has been a staple of our dayside anchor team and a trusted voice on topics at the intersection of politics, finance and international business.”
Most recently, Ruhle has worked as the host of MSNBC Live. Previously, she spent time at Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg News.
In addition to elevating Ruhle to a new time slot, MSNBC has made the decision to extend Morning Joe for another 60 minutes. Moving forward, the show will end at 10 a.m. instead of 9 a.m.
“This expansion will give us an opportunity to extend the reach of the program, which has become so well known for its signature perspective and analysis, as well as its news-making exclusive interviews with top lawmakers, senior government officials and thought leaders,” Jones added, according to NBC News.
