Ronan Farrow, son of actress Mia Farrow, will host a weekday show for MSNBC, the network announced Wednesday.
The one-hour program will launch sometime early next year. MSNBC has been in development talks with Farrow for several months.
Farrow, who is also a writer, human rights lawyer and former foreign policy official for the Obama administration, will contribute to msnbc.com and across the platforms of NBC News.
"Ronan has established himself as a provocative, independent journalist capable of challenging people's assumptions and empowering audiences," said MSNBC president Phil Griffin. "His show will be a game changer for MSNBC, representing a fresh approach to how we deliver news."
