MSNBC Live, also titled NBC News or The Place for Politics during election seasons, is a daily American straight news television program on MSNBC, originating from both New York City and Washington, D.C. studios throughout daytime hours.
“MSNBC Live Stream” is the flagship daytime news platform of NBC News, airing for at least six hours each day on MSNBC. Focusing on live news coverage, the program consists of guest analysis and interviews around the stories of the day, in addition to feature-like stories, in-depth special reports, and forecasts from The Weather Channel. When a story is deemed as breaking news or a special event, MSNBC producers have the discretion to replace any anchor with MSNBC Chief Anchor Brian Williams.

“MSNBC Live” is the name of several hours of the straight news programming on the network (both weekdays and weekends), similar to what is known as “dayside” programming on other cable news channels. Beginning in 2009, MSNBC began to fill in these hours with more “opinionated” news programming. During the network’s pivot back to hard news in 2015, the name returned during daytime hours. The brand is also used during holidays and as fill-in programming when a show ends or is canceled until a new show is ready.
The program aired at various times through the years but most recently aired Saturdays from 2-4pm ET, and Sundays from 3-4pm ET until late 2014, when the program’s anchor, Craig Melvin, was reassigned, seeing the end of the program.
Following major changes to MSNBC’s dayside lineup announced in February 2015, Thomas Roberts was appointed to a new weekday time slot from 1-3pm ET under the Live branding, beginning on March 2.
