y Chris Hayes to Take Over 8 P.M. Slot on MSNBC

Chris Hayes will take over the 8 p.m. time slot on MSNBC in the next month, the channel announced on Thursday morning, the day after the current host of that hour, Ed Schultz, said he was moving from the weekdays to the weekends…
Mr. Hayes, 34, will be the youngest host of a prime-time show on any of the country’s major cable news channels, all of which seek out youthful viewers but tend to have middle-aged hosts and a core audience made up of senior citizens. 

Out with the Ed and in with the Chris!
In addition to it being great that MSNBC is trying to bring in more youthful ideas, the majority of guests on Chris’s show have been non-white males. With 57% non-white male guests, this is significantly more than any of the other top Sunday shows.
I think we’d all love to see more of Melissa Harris-Perry too/instead, but she is a professor at Tulane during the week. This is a step in the right direction for a more youthful and diverse MSNBC though, since most of the hosts start out as guests. Hopefully, it will allow Melissa access to prime time if she ever decides to leave her professor gig.
