NBC is Cutting Ties with Ronna McDaniel Following Backlash

In a memo obtained by Business Insider, NBCUniversal News Group chairman Cesar Conde announced that former Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel will no longer be a paid contributor at NBC News. The decision was made in response to criticism from top talent within the network who felt that McDaniel’s hiring undermined the goal of creating a cohesive and aligned organization.

The initial decision to hire McDaniel was intended to present diverse viewpoints and experiences to the audience, but now NBC will redouble its efforts to seek voices representing different parts of the political spectrum. McDaniel has been preparing for her departure by speaking with prospective attorneys as she may engage in a legal battle with NBC. Creative Artists Agency, the talent agency that helped broker the initial deal between McDaniel and NBC, has also dropped her.

Prominent NBC News figures including Chuck Todd, Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and Rachel Maddow were among those who publicly criticized the decision to hire McDaniel. The fallout from McDaniel’s hiring emphasizes the importance of ensuring a cohesive and aligned organization with diverse viewpoints represented. Politico reported that McDaniel’s position was set to pay her roughly $300,000 per year, which sparked internal backlash at NBC News following layoffs in January.
