Rachel Maddow Career

Maddow works on the cable television channel MSNBC as host of The Rachel Maddow Show, a political opinion program airing weeknights at 9 PM. The Rachel Maddow Show, a mixture of news, opinion, and entertainment was launched on September 8, 2008. That year she also appeared frequently as a panelist on MSNBC’s presidential campaign show, Race for the White House, whose audio was televised on Air America as the 1st hour of her nightly radio program; Maddow’s radio show ended with the demise of Air America in 2010.

Maddow was considered a notably well-informed and well-prepared host—one who interviewed people from across the arts, the political spectrum, and academia and reported topics from comic books to economic policy. While she did not hold back about the liberal opinions she held and advocated on television and radio, she was known for expressing them with a sense of humor and with a lack of bluster that was unusual in the world of politically oriented programming.

Over the next several years Maddow also made regular guest appearances on other cable news and discussion shows as a member of the political left. After the cancellation of Carlson’s show in 2008, she was appointed a regular guest host on another MSNBC political opinion program, Countdown with Keith Olbermann. She quickly garnered popularity with the viewers, and the common expectation that she would soon be given her own show came true within a few years of her television debut.

Maddow was employed immediately as a news reader and soon was appointed cohost of Unfiltered with Lizz Winstead and Chuck D. After that show’s cancellation in 2005, she was given her own, self-named weekday show, which premiered originally for one hour and later for two. She quickly built her reputation as a problem-oriented, fair-minded, left-leaning “policy wonk.” While carrying on her radio work, in 2005 she commenced appearing on conservative Tucker Carlson’s MSNBC talk program. Engaging in polite but frequently heated discussions with Carlson, she cemented her image as a formidable debater.

Before finishing her degree, she accepted a job at a local radio station’s open audition call for a “news girl” on a morning show in Holyoke, Massachusetts. Maddow served as the host’s on-air sidekick for about a year prior to getting her own show at a Northampton station. In the meantime, she competed for her dissertation and was rewarded with her doctorate. In 2004, when Maddow was serving as a morning disc jockey, a friend gave tapes of her effort to a host on the fledgling Air America liberal radio network.
