The civil rights activist has gone from marching in the streets to officially being named host of a weeknight hour of “PoliticsNation,” on MSNBC.
So the question is: will Sharpton succeed as the show’s host?
Sharpton had been guest hosting in that time slot and the ratings have risen about 18 percent since the controversial Sharpton began guest hosting about two months ago.
I’m just wondering if the cable network will dictate to the civil rights activist how he will negotiate both his roles (as activist and host) and what they [the network] will allow him to do; or what they will ask him not to do, since he has taken over as an anchor on MSNBC.
I caught a segment of the show tonight and thought Sharpton did well in debate HOWEVER, he needs training on trimming down his tone and being a bit calmer with his hype; meaning: he’s using an outside voice and not a studio voice in a softer sense.
I think maybe he also needs to get use to the teleprompter because he’s cutting off his guests before they can complete or finish their statements.
Catch Sharpton nightly on PoliticsNation, check your local listings, and tell me if you think Sharpton will fare well in this new role as MSNC’s host or will he opt out and continue in his civil rights position?
In ending he said: “If PolitcsNation is not on your television, then your television is not really on”
Go head Sharpton!!!!!
