MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski may be bringing their brand to NBC's Sunday edition of Weekend Today, according to the New York Post.
“They made a big play for ‘Sunday Today’ and ‘Meet The Press,’ but Turness is not inclined to dump [‘MTP’ host] David Gregory,” one source noted.
Giving them “Sunday Today” could be seen as a compromise — or an interim step, the source added.
Reportedly, the discussions are ongoing and nothing has been decided.
Morning Joe already has a connection to NBC's morning show. Co-host Willie Geist appears on Today and is reported to be a contender for Matt Lauer's spot when Lauer decides to move on.
