MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ Stumbles Out of the Gate With Technical Difficulties, Runs 10 Minutes of Promos

The network also threw up repeats Tuesday morning while attempting to fix the issue

Morning Joe

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” faced technical gremlins at the beginning of Tuesday morning’s episode, causing the network to run more than ten minutes of promos in the meantime. 

Just after 6 a.m., network staffers were met with an unknown glitch, preventing “Morning Joe” from starting on time. Advertisements and a repeat clip from Lawrence O’Donnell’s primetime show aired as staffers attempted to fix the problem. 

“Morning Joe” was finally back on track at around 6:11 a.m., with co-host Mika Brzezinski briefly apologizing for the delay. 

“Thanks for bearing with us, everybody,” Brzezinski said. 

Jonathan Lemire — who anchors the 5 a.m. “Way Too Early,” program — also saw issues, citing “technical difficulties,” in a post on X. 

According to Variety, part of Lemire’s program was also glitching and MSNBC decided to run a repeat clip of “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
