But this seems like a strange move to me: MSNBC’s New Dish: Tom Colicchio is Named Food Correspondent
Here's a little part of the article explaining the hire...
Colicchio will host a new weekly show called “Stirring the Pot” on Shift, and contribute reports to “Morning Joe” and “The Rachel Maddow Show.”I'll reserve judgement until I see it. Who knows? Maybe going this route is a better choice for MSNBC. Their ratings really are struggling right now. I don't see it working, but I've been wrong before.
“Tom’s values, expertise and focus on advocacy are a perfect match for MSNBC and we can’t wait to watch his original and in-depth reporting in action,” says MSNBC president Phil Griffin.
MSNBC says adding Colicchio “is part of MSNBC’s larger strategy to cover a broader set of stories that move and inspire Americans through its progressive lens, while investing in more original reporting from the field.”
