Our Editor's Take

The Beat with Ari Melber is a daily podcast to accompany the cable news show of the same name. Ari Melber, MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent, owns the mic on this nightly news and opinions program and podcast. The American attorney and journalist brings listeners the hottest political news. Episodes contain the top news stories of the day and innovative interviews. Melber does thorough reporting.

Melber's Supreme Court coverage gained widespread recognition, winning him an Emmy. His show The Beat earned a nomination for Outstanding Live Interview. The host worked on defending the First Amendment when he was a practicing attorney. He started in journalism by writing articles for left-leaning publications like The Nation. This path took him to television and then to this role hosting his own show.

While Melber is the main voice on The Beat with Ari Melber, that doesn't mean he is the only voice on the show. He welcomes a range of fantastic panelists and guest hosts. Maya Wiley and Michelle Goldberg join him to discuss the Republican Party and women's rights issues. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg talks about criminal justice reform. Comedian Bill Maher shows a lighter side to politics when he guests on the show.

Melber's award-winning journalism reporting on nationwide news is not one to miss. He's intelligent, agile, and garners attention with every news story. He discusses elections, subpoenas, news on the U.S. Senate, and much more. The Beat with Ari Melber has new episodes each weekday.
