Alec BaldwinAlec Baldwin has officially joined the MSNBC family. The late-night show “Up Late w/Alec Baldwin” will begin in October and air Fridays at 10 p.m., the network said Thursday.

MSNBC president Phil Griffin made the announcement about the current events and culture talk show, noting that he’d been “talking with Alec for a while.”

“I’ve been talking with Alec for a while and can’t wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC,” Griffin said. “He’s got such passion for ideas and what’s going on in the world — he’s going to be a great addition to our line-up.”

Baldwin isn’t completely new to the hosting game; he’s held court on the WNYC podcast “Here’s the Thing” since 2011, interviewing personalities ranging from David Letterman to Dick Cavett.

“After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field,” Baldwin said of the new gig. “I’m grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television.”
