“This is going to be my final broadcast will all of you,” Hunt said, adding that she would have more on her next adventure “in the next few weeks.”
She also indicated that she was leaving the network altogether. “I just want to thank everyone at NBC News, at MSNBC, of course to Mika, for always insisting that you should know your value.” That was a reference to Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, who wrote the best selling motivational book, Know Your Value: Women, Money and Getting What Your Worth.
An MSNBC spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Hunt had hosted the Sunday show Kasie DC until last September, when MSNBC switched her to the morning slot anchoring the weekday Way Too Early. She also was NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent.
Hunt joined NBC News in 2013 covering Congress and politics, and became political correspondent for MSNBC in 2014. She began anchoring the Sunday evening Kasie DC in 2017. She previously worked for the Associated Press and Politico.

“I will so miss working with you and the amazing team @WayTooEarly! And after I spend a few days sleeping in, count me among your loyal viewers in the future,” Hunt wrote.
She later posted a tweet from her husband Matt Rivera of their son.
