Ronan Farrow Confirmed To Host Talk Show For MSNBC
October 17th, 2013 10:49pm EDT
Mia Farrow's son Ronan has been confirmed to host a new talk show on MSNBC.
Farrow, who worked as one of Barack Obama's foreign policy officials, will host a weekday show aimed at younger voters on the left-leaning network.
MSNBC president Phil Griffin made the announcement that the 25-year-old was joining the network on Wednesday, after which Farrow spoke with The Hollywood Reporter.
"I think what people crave is more involvement in the story," says the Rhodes scholar. "There has been a democratization of information. But what they still crave, and what I crave as a TV viewer, is a guide on how people can have agency in the story. And this show is all about empowering people to do that. People want a return to real democracy. They want to respond to these events [in Washington] that there is so much frustration about."
Farrow also pitched the show to rival news net CNN.
Earlier this month, Mia Farrow told Vanity Fair magazine that there was a chance her first husband, Frank Sinatra, could "possibly" be the biological father of Ronan, born Satchel O'Sullivan Farrow to Mia and then partner Woody Allen.
