MSNBC has cancelled the Hugh Hewitt Show after one season following poor ratings.
Hewitt announced the cancellation at the end of Saturday’s broadcast, which now serves as the last in the show’s run:
“It’s been great fun to bring interviews with high-profile newsmakers to you and I will do more of it, which brings me to an important programming note. This has been the last Hugh Hewitt Show on MSNBC on Saturday mornings.”
Hewitt says he will stay on at the network as a contributor on shows such as Meet the Press, where he intends to conduct more one-on-one interviews:
“It’s been great fun to host this show and I will see you on MSNBC soon.”
