The news comes after harassment claims were alleged against the journalist.

Mark Halperin is officially out as a senior political analyst for MSNBC and NBC, a spokesman confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday morning.

On Thursday, a day after CNN reported five anonymous allegations of sexual harassment against Halperin, an NBCUniversal News Group spokesman said that his role at the network was on hold. "We find the story and the allegations very troubling," the spokesman said at the time. "Mark Halperin is leaving his role as a contributor until the questions around his past conduct are fully understood.”

Halperin is a regular on MSNBC's Morning Joe, and a spokesman would not say definitively whether he would appear on the show again.

Halperin had rejoined MSNBC and NBC as an analyst earlier this year, after a stint hosting a daily politics show for Bloomberg called With All Due Respect.
