MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” team of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinsk might be soon working Weekends.
The New York Post reports that the MSNBC show might move over from cable to NBC on Sunday mornings.
While no such deal is done, persons close to the show have been telling friends that the team is taking over “Weekend Today” ’s Sunday show, sources said.
The talks are very much fluid and there is no guarantee of any expansion, other sources said.
An NBC spokeswoman said, “No comment.”
Just two years ago, the political TV duo were ready to bolt NBC for CBS News before NBCUniversal boss Steve Burke stepped in to keep them in the fold.
The talks, several sources said, dovetail with the arrival last summer of Deborah Turness as the NBC News chief.
“They made a big play for ‘Sunday Today’ and ‘Meet The Press,’ but Turness is not inclined to dump [‘MTP’ host] David Gregory,” one source noted.
Giving them “Sunday Today” could be seen as a compromise — or an interim step, the source added.
