NEW YORK — Melissa Harris-Perry and MSNBC are parting ways.

A spokesperson for the network confirmed Sunday that Harris-Perry will not be returning to the weekend discussion show she has hosted since 2012.

She was scheduled to appear Saturday and Sunday in the regular slot from 10 a.m. to noon. But Harris-Perry announced several days ago that she would not show up.

She said that was her response to MSNBC's pre-emption of the program for most of February in favor of heavier coverage of presidential politics. — AP
