MSNBC is reportedly considering moving Chuck Todd to a morning time slot and bringing former longtime Fox News host Shepard Smith on board for a prime-time slot.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, several sources at NBC claimed the company is looking to acquire Smith, who left Fox News in October. The sources noted that the network would like to move Chuck Todd’s MTP Daily to a morning time slot and fill the 5 p.m. EST hour with an anchor who can drive higher ratings before the 2020 election is in full swing.

The article goes on to state the following:

The report claimed Smith met with MSNBC President Phil Griffin to discuss potential roles within the network after his noncompete agreement with Fox News expires, though no final decisions have been made. An NBC source also claimed that CNN is looking to hire Smith but that his contract could be a very expensive acquisition.

Smith would get a prime-time show if he joined MSNBC.
