NBC News released a statement on Tuesday afternoon announcing that former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is out at the network just days after the company announced that they had hired her to be a contributor.

NBC News Chairman Cesar Conde made the announcement in a memo to employees after multiple on-air hosts at MSNBC lashed out at the company during their news shows.

“There is no doubt that the last several days have been difficult for the News Group. After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor,” he said. “No organization, particularly a newsroom, can succeed unless it is cohesive and aligned. Over the last few days, it has become clear that this appointment undermines that goal.”

“I want to personally apologize to our team members who felt we let them down. While this was a collective recommendation by some members of our leadership team, I approved it and take full responsibility for it,” he continued. “Our initial decision was made because of our deep commitment to presenting our audiences with a widely diverse set of viewpoints and experiences, particularly during these consequential times.”


Conde said that the network was committed to its “principle that we must have diverse viewpoints on our programs,” which means that they will “redouble” their efforts to “seek voices that represent different parts of the political spectrum.”

The problems at NBC News created additional problems for McDaniel as Creative Artists Agency, the Hollywood talent agency that negotiated her deal, ended its relationship with her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

McDaniel is now focused exploring her legal options following her termination from the network.
