Bloomberg’s flagship politics show will find a second home on MSNBC. The channel will re-air “With All Due Respect”, featuring Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, will continue to air on Bloomberg weeknights at 5pm. Starting in January MSNBC will fill up the 6pm vacancy left by Al Sharpton’s “Politics Nation” with a re-airing of Halperin and Heilemann’s show, which has been expanded from its original 30 minutes to a full hour.
Andrew Lack, of NBC News and MSNBC, released a statement saying, “I’ve known and respected Mark and John’s work for many years. Collaborating with them on our air will strengthen our already deep and experienced political lineup as MSNBC heads into a pivotal election year.”
Justin B. Smith, Bloomberg Media CEO, said of the announcement, “This is a natural extension of the Bloomberg Politics brand for us. ‘With All Due Respect’ has been a strong multi-platform success story, and we welcome this opportunity to expand its reach to new audiences through this partnership with MSNBC.”
