Melissa Harris-Perry Posts 'Farewell' Tweet to MSNBC, Says She's 'Grateful'

Melissa Harris-Perry made good on her recent promise to abdicate her post at MSNBC, using Twitter to send a Sunday-morning message to those who will miss seeing her on their screens.

Harris-Perry, whose show is supposed to air for three hours at 10 am on Saturday and Sundays, told the New York Times on Friday that she wouldn’t be returning this weekend, despite being asked by MSNBC. She hasn’t appeared on air in several weeks due to preemptions for election coverage, leading her to feel “effectively and utterly silenced” by the network.

This was her message to fans on Sunday morning:

An NBC News spokesperson tells the New York Times: “In this exciting and unpredictable presidential primary season, many of our daytime programs have been temporarily upended by breaking political coverage, including MHP. This reaction is really surprising, confusing and disappointing.”
