Telemundo network news anchor Jose Díaz-Balart will be a guest host for Tamron Hall on MSNBC’s “NewsNation” this week. He’ll be subbing for 3 days, starting today until Wednesday, August 15th at 2pm ET.
Telemundo says it’s partnering with “NewsNation” to highlight issues important to the Hispanic community. José’s role in MSNBC is part of the NBC News-Telemundo Media partnership, which gives Telemundo access to the assets and strengths of NBC news, while Telemundo contributes its expertise and reach within the Hispanic community.
It should be noted that MSNBC does not have a single full-time Latino anchor or host in its lineup. Given the country’s demographics, maybe it’s time MSNBC considers adding a Latino to its anchor force. What do you think?
