MSNBC Launches Streaming Video Hub

ShiftMSNBCMSNBC is expanding its online video reach with “Shift.” The digital news hub will feature a slate of original programming plus a loop of MSNBC programs. The new shows will cover a wide variety of topics, from politics to pop culture.

If you want to catch the new shows — which include “Reporters Notebook,” hosted by MSNBC’s Beth Fouhy and “Three Cents,” hosted by the New York Times’ Josh Barro — you’ll have to tune in Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.

Phil Griffin, MSNBC’s president, told Variety that Shift is “a way to innovate, do things differently and find out what works. I don’t want to call it a farm system. It’s a place where we get to experiment, and I guarantee you, stuff is going to pop.”
