Has MSNBC named a replacement for ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews’?

As of noon eastern March 3, MSNBC.com still lists “Hardball” on its website’s navigation menu as well as its online schedule.
Although Steve Kornacki took over for Matthews after he made his retirement announcement on air March 2, it does not appear MSNBC has named him as permanent host for the hour, instead opting to go with rotating temporary hosts.
Meanwhile, with the day after Matthews’ retirement being Super Tuesday, the network replaced all of its normal shows with “Decision 2020” branded coverage, so “Hardball” likely would not have appeared on the schedule even if Matthews hadn’t retired.
It does, however, still appear on many TV listing websites with Matthews’ name through at least March 13, 2020 as of this writing, though listings data can often take a few days to fully update.
NBC News did not respond to request for comment.
