NBC says 'Morning Joe' host has role expanded

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - NBC News says "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough will be a senior political analyst for the network with regular roles on "Meet the Press" and the "Today" show.

Scarborough co-hosts the political talk show on MSNBC with Mika Brzezinski (breh-ZHIN'-skee). Generally, over the past year, NBC News has sought to distance itself from MSNBC, where a politically liberal viewpoint dominates, but that isn't the case with Scarborough, a former Republican congressman. He'll continue on "Morning Joe."

NBC said Friday that Scarborough will be a regular contributor to round-table discussions on "Meet the Press," where new moderator Chuck Todd replaces David Gregory on Sunday.

Scarborough will offer analysis on other NBC News broadcasts and work as part of the network's election team.
