MSNBC and NBC News’s Kasie Hunt Announces Departure At End Of ‘Way Too Early’

Kasie Hunt closed MSNBC’s Way Too Early on Friday by announcing her departure.

“This is going to be my final broadcast will all of you,” Hunt said, adding that she would have more on her next adventure “in the next few weeks.”

She also indicated that she was leaving the network altogether. “I just want to thank everyone at NBC News, at MSNBC, of course to Mika, for always insisting that you should know your value.” That was a reference to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, who wrote the best selling motivational book, Know Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What Your Worth.

An MSNBC spokesperson confirmed that Hunt is leaving MSNBC and NBC News. Way Too Early will continue in the meantime with various MSNBC figures as host in the interim.

Hunt had hosted the Sunday show Kasie DC until last September, when MSNBC switched her to the morning slot anchoring the weekday Way Too Early. She also was NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent.
