A media news site is reporting that Alec Baldwin is slated to become a host on MSNBC.
According to an unnamed source on the website Mediaite, Baldwin will host a show in the 10 p.m. time slot on Fridays.
MSNBC didn’t deny the report in the article: “We’re fans of Alec, but we’ve got nothing to say regarding this unconfirmed report,” a source with the news channel said.
The slot is currently open since Lawrence O’Donnell only hosts that time slot from Monday through Thursday.
He also has connections with NBC Entertainment, as he wrapped up the "30 Rock" TV series earlier this year.
Baldwin came under fire in June for a series of anti-gay tweets aimed at a reporter who claimed the actor's wife was tweeting during actor James Gandolfini’s memorial service.
He quickly apologized but not before being chided by CNN host Anderson Cooper and prominent political blogger Andrew Sullivan.
