QUICK TAKES

MSNBC pairs Chung, Povich

November 08, 2005|Matea Gold

Connie Chung and Maury Povich are teaming up behind the anchor desk for a new Saturday morning news show set to air on MSNBC in January.

In the half-hour program, the married couple will discuss the week's news and conduct interviews. The show is being produced by Lizz Winstead, a co-creator and former head writer of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and part of the creative team that developed Air America Radio.

Povich hosts a syndicated talk show for NBC Universal. Chung, who has worked at all three broadcast networks, has been on a hiatus since she left CNN in 2003.

Chung said in a statement: "The question is not whether the program will last ... the question is 'Can our marriage survive?!' "
