If you’re not already tweeked by the Vince Vaughn news, I have more political/entertainment cross over gossip.

Seems MSNBC is seriously considering bumping fan fav Chuck Todd’s 5pm MTP Daily slot on the network to make room for former Fox News host Shepard Smith.

Todd would move to a morning segment in the shakeup.

‘It’s unclear what slot he [Smith] would take, but we’d want him in prime time,’ an MSNBC insider told The Daily Beast.

The insider claimed that CNN president Jeff Zucker is also pursuing Smith as well as a ‘number of networks’.

Sources revealed that MSNBC may be bracing for a major shakeup this year.

Todd has been hosting MTP Daily at 5pm since 2015. The host is said to be resisting the possible move at the network.

Smith, who was a  midday anchor for Fox News, quit the network in October.

The host, who had been with the network since its inception in 1996, stepped down from his role as chief news anchor and managing editor of the network’s breaking news unit and anchor of Shepard Smith Reporting.

The decision to exit Fox News was made by Smith, and only Smith, publicists for both the anchor and the network said on Friday.
