Lawrence O'Donnell Made A Contract Renewal And Is Sticking With MSNBC - For Some Years More!

MSNBC’s host Lawrence O’Donnell has renewed his contract with MSNBC expiring on June 4, 2017, as per reports on June 1, 2017.

The popular host, Lawrence, announced on air and concluded the show “The Last Word” on May 31, 2017, saying,

“I will be sitting right here talking about the James Comey hearing and everything else that happens next week and everything that happens for the next couple of years,” 

Moreover, Lawrence confirmed the news of his contract through Twitter and officially announced that he would be part of MSNBC for next couple of years.

However, the terms of the contract have not been disclosed yet.  

As per the source of Huff Post back in May 2017, MSNBC’s network executives’ did not contact Lawrence, when the contract was on the verge of expiry.

Moreover, there was the possibility of luring away the talented host Lawrence by the rival networks.

Lawrence contributed in increasing MSNBC’s ratings, and the highest records were achieved as the Donald Trump’s administration got embroiled in various scandals.

As per reports,  NBC’s News’ chairman, Andrew Lack tried to move The Last Word to 6 pm slot and fill the vacant spot with anchor Brian Williams.

The ardent supporters of Lawrence protested outside NBC’s office in support of “The Last Word, ” and now with the announcement, the supports feel victorious.

The organizer behind the protest program, Annie Salas gave a statement as,

I was thrilled to hear and see Lawrence’s direct message to his fans. It tells me that although MSNBC is still placing conservative voices on air, the ratings and the fan support for the Rachel and Lawrence prime-time block needed to remain. We may have been a small presence at Rock Center , but MarchforLawrence was a visible stand beyond what a petition or a phone call could accomplish. Success!

With the news of Lawrence’s contract renewal, his fans are relieved and joyous!

Congratulations Lawrence!
