Veteran political journalist John Heilemann is returning to MSNBC, where he'll serve as chief political analyst. The move, announced on Tuesday, reunites Heilemann with the network where he gained prominence as a co-host of "The Daily Rundown" and a contributor on various programs.

From "Game Change" to "The Circus"

Heilemann is widely recognized for his work as a co-author of the best-selling book "Game Change," which detailed the 2008 presidential election. He has also served as a contributing editor for "New York" magazine and co-hosted the Showtime political series "The Circus."

Back to His Roots

His return to MSNBC marks a full-circle moment for Heilemann, who began his career at the network in the 1990s. "I'm thrilled to be coming back to MSNBC," Heilemann said in a statement. "I've always felt at home there, and I'm excited to be part of the network's continued commitment to covering politics with depth and insight."

A Season of Change

Heilemann's appointment comes as MSNBC undergoes significant changes under its new president, Rashida Jones. The network is seeking to re-energize its political coverage and solidify its position as a leading source for political news and analysis.

Heilemann's Impact

Heilemann is expected to bring his deep understanding of politics, his sharp wit, and his ability to connect with viewers to MSNBC's lineup. His insights will be invaluable as the network navigates the 2024 presidential election cycle and other major political events.
