NBC Gives In To Backlash, Announces Ronna McDaniel Is Out Just Days After Hiring

On Tuesday, NBC News announced that they were giving into the backlash from hiring former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, saying she would no longer be a part of the network.  

NBC News Chairman Cesar Conde made the announcement in a memo to employees after numerous network hosts lashed out at the company during their shows. 

“There is no doubt that the last several days have been difficult for the News Group. After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor,” he said. “No organization, particularly a newsroom, can succeed unless it is cohesive and aligned. Over the last few days, it has become clear that this appointment undermines that goal.” 

“I want to personally apologize to our team members who felt we let them down. While this was a collective recommendation by some members of our leadership team, I approved it and take full responsibility for it,” he continued. “Our initial decision was made because of our deep commitment to presenting our audiences with a widely diverse set of viewpoints and experiences, particularly during these consequential times.” 

He went on to say that the network was committed to its “principle that we must have diverse viewpoints on our programs,” which means that they will “redouble” their efforts to “seek voices that represent different parts of the political spectrum.”
