Washington Post Live announces weekly programming on Peacock’s 'The Choice from MSNBC'

Washington Post Live, The Washington Post's live journalism platform, is launching a new weekly program on Peacock. Each Friday at 4 p.m. ET on Peacock’s streaming channel "The Choice from MSNBC," Washington Post Live will present an hour-long special including the widely watched "First Look," a roundtable conversation hosted by opinion columnist Jonathan Capehart. Each episode will also feature a second Washington Post Live program from the week with top-level government and business leaders, emerging voices and newsmakers discussing the most pressing national and global issues of the day.

“Washington Post Live is a must stop for any news headliner or leading industry voice who wants to be part of the national conversation," said Kris Coratti Kelly, chief communications officer of The Post and general manager of Washington Post Live. “We are pleased to join Peacock’s ‘The Choice from MSNBC’ channel to stream these diverse voices for a new audience."

In the first episode, Capehart will lead a discussion with Post chief correspondent Dan Balz and contributing columnists Donna Edwards and Hugh Hewitt about the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, the current status of the war on terror and the recent U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. First Look will be followed by a program featuring former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Tony Blair in conversation with Post foreign affairs columnist David Ignatius about 9/11 and the allies’ response, how extremism has since evolved and where the world stands today in its war against terrorism.

Washington Post Live content joins other shows now streaming on “The Choice from MSNBC”: MSNBC Perspectives, Zerlina, The Mehdi Hasan Show and Majority Report with Sam Seder.
