JUST IN: NBC News and MSNBC Hire Ex-RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel

March 23, 2024

After stepping down from her role as chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel will join NBC News as a political analyst. She will make her NBC debut on this Sunday’s Meet the Press for an interview with Kristen Welker. In addition to providing commentary for NBC, McDaniel will also appear on MSNBC for coverage during the 2024 election season. She was replaced by co-chairs Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, and Michael Whatley. Before resigning from the RNC, McDaniel became the subject of criticism by Trump and his supporters after several Republican election losses, even after McDaniel played a role in the scheme to overturn the 2020 election.
