There’s a storm brewing over MSNBC, MTO News has learned. Inside sources say the network plans to fire Joy Reid from her prime-time show.
Word on the sidewalk is that Joy Reid’s ratings are horrendous and MSNBC is now firing her because of it.
Here is the receipt, from Jon Nicolla, a well-known media executive who ran Mediaite. Notice that he has a blue check mark next to his Twitter ID:
But there is much more to the story. MTO News dug a bit and learned that Joy’s show – which airs at 7:00 a.m. ET – has the LOWEST BUDGET of any other Primetime show.
But Chris claims there are other reasons Joy gets fired – namely his attitude !!
Here is what he wrote:
As was the case with Chris Cuomo at CNN, Reid has allies at Comcast, however, she is now considered “unmanageable” by many. Further, as with Cuomo, it appears that these allies discovered that she had been “less than truthful about past incidents” 2 / (more to come).

With Joy getting the boot, the only black person on MSNBC’s weekday program is Craig Melvin, who has a show that airs at 11:00 am.
An insider told MTO News, “Joy gets the lowest budget, but they expect her to get the highest marks. “
