Ezra Klein Up for New MSNBC Show

MSNBC is hot, and Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein may soon be its new star. Network sources tell The New York Times that the blogger is in the running to host his own show, which could either get a weekend slot or bump Ed Schultz from the weekday 8 p.m. hour. The NBC subsidiary would be a solid platform for the wonky Klein—the liberal-leaning channel has been closing the gap with Fox News in the ratings race, especially in the key younger demographics.
