NBC’s Chuck Todd Kicks Off Streaming News Show on Peacock in September

Fern Siegel

Starting in September, Chuck Todd, NBC News’ moderator for “Meet the Press” and host of “MTP Daily,” will launch a live-streaming political show on NBC News Now and Peacock, reports Variety.

The timing coincides with the upcoming November 3 election and the new landscape for the 2020 race.

The network is creating an additional production team for its streaming programs.

To accommodate the move, “Deadline: White House,” hosted by Nicolle Wallace, will air from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Todd’s previous “MTP Daily” slot. His show will move to 1 p.m.

Part of the reason for the shift is that TV news viewers are gradually migrating to streaming platforms. TV is still a lucrative business, but demographics are changing. And the group most sought-after by advertisers is the 25-54 demo.

While few big names have traditionally gone the streaming route, that is changing. Alongside Chuck Todd, Lester Holt hosts a “Kids Edition” of “NBC Nightly News” on YouTube.

Also, CNN debuted “Full Circle,” hosted by Anderson Cooper on Facebook Watch, on July 16.
