Ronan Farrow's MSNBC series gets premiere date: What to expect, based on his Twitter
The network announced that Farrow's daytime show will make its debut on Feb. 24 at 1 p.m. ET/PT. MSNBC also says TheGrio.com managing editor Joy Reid will be getting her own show at 2 p.m. "Ronan and Joy are two of the most thoughtful and impressive journalists out there and I'm excited for what they will bring to the afternoon," MSNBC president Phil Griffin says in a statement.
In addition to his famous parentage, Farrow is known for working in the State Department under Hillary Clinton and having his work published in outlets like The Guardian, The Atlantic and The Wall Street Journal. MSNBC says that the news show will highlight Farrow's personality, which should be exciting to those out there who follow the 26-year-old on Twitter.
Things to expect when Farrow arrives on MSNBC: Plenty of pop culture snark, at least one jab at his estranged father Woody Allen and plenty of comparisons of random things to Ryan Seacrest. Are you prepared for that? We sure are.
Farrow has been killing it on Twitter for a while now, but a taste of his current political slant can be sampled from his Twitter account starting at the beginning of 2014. Here's some of his best tweets from January to give viewers an idea of what commentary they can expect from his MSNBC series. Enjoy.
