Rachel Maddow Show moves to mornings

In an article entitled Maddow rechannels energy at Air America in the New York Daily News, the mystery of what happened to the Rachel Maddow show when the Ron Reagan Show expanded to three hours is revealed. As I suspected, Rachel has given up her afternoon show on Air America and the former second hour of the show that was being recycled from the evening MSNBC Rachel Maddow show has moved to the early morning: 5 am Eastern/2 am Pacific.  Since I am not usually up at 2 am pacific (except sometimes on weekends) I hadn’t been sure what was happening. Since I was rather bored with the recycled segment (having seen it on MSNBC the night before) I was happy to see the Ron Reagan Show expanded.

In other program changes, XM Radio has moved Thom Hartmann to the 6-9 PM Eastern/3-6 PM Pacific Segment, allowing him the full three hours, and expanded Mike Malloy from 2 to three hours in the 9-12 PM Eastern/6-9 Pacific.  (America Left, Channel 167) I’m not sure what time RR Show will be on but will find out.
