The article reports on the selection of Dan Abrams, general manager of MSNBC, as host of "Live With Dan Abrams" at 9 p.m. over the summer in the U.S. The move is a result of the long-expected restructuring triggered by the firing of morning host Don Imus in April. Abrams gave up management duties upon accepting the offer as host. NBC News made the moves permanent, with Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough as host of "Morning Joe."
