MSNBC’s Kasie DC aired for the final time on Sunday, September 13th but disappointed fans are still asking ‘why Kasie DC is ending?’
It’s always a strange time when a TV show leaves our screens for the final time, even if that show is a political news program.
For MSNBC viewers, Sunday, September 13th saw the very last airing of Kasie DC, the new program hosted by Kasie Hunt.
Understandably, viewers have been left disappointed by the news but just why is Kasie DC ending and what is Kasie Hunt going to do next?
Kasie DC has ended
Kasie DC, presented by its titular host, Kasie Hunt, broadcast for the final time on Sunday, September 13th.
The MSNBC program first appeared on our screens in October 2017 but will not reach its third anniversary after being brought to an end as part of an MSNBC schedule shuffle.
Why is Kasie DC ending?
Kasie DC is coming to an end because its host, Kasie Hunt, will be taking on a new challenge as the lead anchor for the revived Way Too Early show which is returning to MSNBC after more than four years.
Way Too Early first aired on MSNBC in July 2009 with original host Willie Geist before falling off the TV schedule in August 2016.
Kasie Hunt will begin presenting the revived Way Too Early on September 21st, 2020 and views will get the chance to tune in each weekday at 5am ET.
Fans react to Kasie DC’s cancellation
It’s safe to say that Kasie DC viewers have been left disappointed by the announcement that the Kasie Hunt-presented program has come to an end but many have been supportive of the anchor taking on a new challenge.
One fan on Twitter wrote: “Way too early is right. I enjoyed “Kasie DC” on Sunday nights and will miss it. It’s disappointing that she’ll be on when most people (including me) are sleeping.”
While another added: “Congrats to MSNBC on getting more @kasie — and it’s convenient viewing in my time zone to boot :)”
And finally, this Twitter user is most disappointed that the Kasie DC name will disappear: “I didn’t realize Kasie DC was ending (though I can’t figure out how she’d do both). Kasie DC is the best name for a news TV show, ever.”
Kasie Hunt will be back on MSNBC at 5am ET on September 21st when she presents Way Too Early for the first time.
