Rachel Maddow Taking A ‘Hiatus’ From Her Nightly MSNBC Show: Report

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow will take a “hiatus” from her top-rated primetime show, according to Claire Atkinson of Business Insider.


Atkinson reports:

Maddow is taking time to work on a Focus Features movie based on her book and podcast “Bag Man” about a political bribery scandal. It will be directed by Ben Stiller and Maddow will be an executive producer. The influential anchor is also developing a new podcast.

Maddow’s break from her nightly hosting duties will only be for a few weeks:

“Maddow’s break to re-energize and also set up her new outside projects will be temporary.”

Maddow recently signed a new contract with MSNBC that pays her $30 million a year and will keep her at the network through the 2024 election.
