The Women’s Media Center Extends Congratulations to MSNBC’s new host Melissa Harris-Perry

| January 5, 2012

The Women’s Media Center extends our congratulations to MSNBC’s new host, political analyst Melissa Harris-Perry. The underrepresentation of women and people of color is at its most acute on the influential Sunday morning political talk shows where male guests outnumber female guests four to one. We are hopeful that Melissa Harris-Perry will amplify women’s voices on her new weekend show and invite her and her team to tap into SheSource, the Women's Media Center's database of 500 women experts representing all fields.

Please joins us in congratulating Melissa Harris-Perry by tuning in on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00a.m. to 12:00 p.m. starting on February 4, 2012.

Diversifying the media landscape is critical to the health of our democracy. We applaud Melissa Harris-Perry and MSNBC for taking steps to change the conversation in the media.
