MSNBC’s hard news pivot continues as Chuck Todd will return to the network to host a weekday show.

An insider familiar with the situation told TheWrap says the “Meet the Press” moderator will host a weekday political show that’s a deep dive into politics and the 2016 election. The time slot and start date is not yet known.

Todd hosted “The Daily Rundown” on MSNBC for years until his ascension to moderating the flagship Sunday show.

The move continues the network’s move away from opinion in favor of more traditional news. Other daytime moves are expected imminently with other opinion shows on the chopping block.

MSNBC did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
