MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki and Joy Reid both are on the shortlist to take over from Chris Matthews after his shocking exit, however, there is other name in front of both reporters. Insiders tell STRAIGHT SHUITER that the networks first choice is former presidential candidate, Mayor Pete.
“Steve and Joy both want this job and neither know that behind their backs the network wants Mayor Pete. The new trend is hiring former politicians and the people around them. No-one is a better example of this than Nicole Wallace who worked on the John McCain and Sarah Palin campaign. Her show on MSNBC is now a monster hit and the executives are hoping to recreate that with Mayor Pete,” sources tell STRAIGHT SHUTER. “Let’s be honest, Pete needs a job. The pay is good, and the hours are great, plus after his rise to a national level he isn’t going to want to give up the spotlight.”
Just don’t tell Steve and Joy! WINK
