MSNBC’S RACHEL MADDOW ANCHORS LIVE FROM AFGHANISTAN, JULY 6-7
NEW YORK – June 28, 2010 – MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow will travel to Afghanistan for the first time this week; she will anchor “The Rachel Maddow Show” live from Kabul Tuesday, July 6 and Wednesday, July 7.
Maddow will also be joined by NBC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel, who has been reporting extensively with troops in Afghanistan. The trip, her first to the region, comes as Gen. Petraeus assumes command there, on the heels of Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s ouster as command of the U.S. and NATO war effort in Afghanistan, and as debate mounts over U.S. counter-insurgency strategy in the nation and the timetable for withdrawal.
“The Rachel Maddow Show” telecasts weeknights, 9-10 p.m. ET on MSNBC. Bill Wolff is executive producer.
