José Díaz-Balart To Host New MSNBC Weekday Show Amid Schedule Changes

José Díaz-Balart will host a new 10 AM ET show on MSNBC, as Hallie Jackson takes over a slot later in the day at 3 PM ET.

Díaz-Balart will end his role as anchor of Telemundo’s nightly newscast Noticias Telemundo at the end of the month, but will still anchor monthly specials and breaking news events.

Those were among the schedule changes the network announced on Tuesday.

Ayman Mohyeldin, who had been in the 3 PM slot, will shift to weekends with a show called Ayman. He’ll also be hosting a Friday show on the streaming channel The Choice from MSNBC.

José Díaz-Balart Reports will premiere on Sept. 27.  Ayman will debut on Sept. 18.

Díaz-Balart will continue to anchor NBC Nightly News Saturday. When he began anchoring that newscast, he became the first journalist to anchor two different evening newscasts on separate broadcast networks in English and Spanish. He’s won four Emmy awards, the George Foster Peabody Award and the Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.

“I look forward to this unique role where I can reach different audiences in English and Spanish across the NBCUniversal News Group,” he said in a statement.
