Alec Baldwin Joining MSNBC: Report

Alec Baldwin may soon be joining MSNBC to host a new primetime show, according to a report from Mediaite.

An anonymous cable news industry source told the media news site that the show is slated to air at 10 p.m. on Fridays. A name for the show has not yet been chosen, according to Mediaite, though their source tells them that the show is essentially "a done deal" at this point.

A spokesperson for Baldwin declined to comment.

Fans got a little taste of what Baldwin might be like as an MSNBC host in May of last year, when he ended up reading out headlines during a guest appearance on "The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell." "I have no idea when he will seize the microphone next!" O'Donnell joked at the time.

Rumors swirled in 2011 that Baldwin would be replacing Keith Olbermann after the "Countdown" host's departure from MSNBC, but they turned out to be unfounded.
