MSNBC replaces 'Tucker' with 'Race'


MSNBC on Monday canceled Tucker Carlson's daily show, replacing it for the time being with a campaign-focused hour anchored by NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory.

Carlson has had a daily program on MSNBC since June 2005 after he moved to the channel at the invitation of then-MSNBC president Rick Kaplan. "Tucker" never really found its footing in the ratings, either in late primetime or early evening. Carlson also has hosted CNN's "Crossfire" and PBS' "Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered." He will remain with the network as senior campaign correspondent after the show goes off the air Friday.

In its place will be "Race for the White House," hosted by Gregory, who will remain chief White House correspondent as well as fill-in host on "Today."
