'Sunday Morning' Scarborough Now Senior Political Analyst

Joe Scarborough will make Sunday mornings part of his gig.

NBC News today named Scarborough, the cohost of MSNBC's Morning Joe weekday show, its senior political analyst.

Scarborough will also be a regular contributor to the revamped Meet the Press, which will see Chuck Todd take over for David Gregory as moderator, beginning this Sunday, Sept. 7.

Scarborough will join NBC News' election coverage team as well as offer political analysis on other NBC News platforms, including the Today show.

"Joe has one of the best political minds in the NBC family,” said Todd. “His love of politics and passion for debate will guarantee the kind of robust conversation that has always been a hallmark of Meet the Press, and I look forward to the reported analysis he'll bring to the table."
