TV Note: Matthews signs new deal

Monday, June 10, 2002

"Hardball" host Chris Matthews has signed a new contract that keeps him at MSNBC through 2009. Matthews will also be MSNBC's anchor on election nights in 2002 and 2004.

The fast-talking newspaper columnist and former political aide has made "Hardball" into one of the most popular shows on a network that needs as many as it can get. It will shift from 7 to 9 p.m. and air exclusively on MSNBC, with no reruns airing on CNBC, as has been done recently.

Matthews will displace a nightly news program with Ashleigh Banfield. A spokeswoman said Banfield's show will move to another time slot that hasn't been determined.

Meanwhile, Fox News Channel announced that Alan Colmes had signed a contract extension to stay on that network's 9 p.m. show, "Hannity & Colmes."
