Alec Baldwin is moving on from his acting roots and taking a spot as the newest talk show host of Up Late w/ Alec Baldwin, set to air Fridays.
The former 30 Rock actor was recently announced as the host of a weekly current events show set to air at 10 p.m. beginning in October, USA Today reports.
"After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field," Baldwin explains. "I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.”
Cinema Blend notes that the talk show will vary in topic, from politics to entertainment news, and will feature on-air guests. Baldwin has long been the subject of other talk show hosts' conversations following his numerous run-ins with paparazzi.
His new position comes shortly after the birth of his second daughter Carmen Gabriela with wife Hilaria Thomas.
