Chris Hayes is an American political analyst, journalist, podcaster, producer, and author. After appearing as a guest host on “The Rachel Maddow Show” in 2010, Chris Hayes began his career in television hosting appearances on various MSNBC programs.
In 2011, MSNBC awarded Chris a two-hour weekend morning show called “Up with Chris Hayes.” Since 2013, he has been the host of the show “All in with Chris Hayes” on the network.
What Happened To Chris Hayes?
Chris started working on MSNBC as a contributor in 2010. He frequently served as a guest host on the TV show during that time. Hayes currently hosts “All In With Chris Hayes” on MSNBC, which airs Monday through Friday. In addition, he contributes to the “Why Is This Happening?” MSNBC podcast.
Chris is having his vacation time with his family. However, the journalist has not opened up about his whereabouts.
In any case, he has lovely photos of himself and his daughter on Instagram. The father and daughter appear to be enjoying every minute of their trip.

Is Chris Hayes Leaving MSNBC?
Chris has not indicated that he intends to depart from MSNBC. Rather, it appears that he and his show have simply stopped for a minimum of one week in order for him to travel and spend time with his family. In the world of cable TV, where you have to host a show every night and it’s not always clear when you can take a break, this is not unusual. While television is unavoidable, Chris shouldn’t be expected to host every program all year round.

I’m not a member of the WGA (though hope to be soon) but am so awed by the solidarity and tenacity and righteous discipline they’ve showed throughout this strike. (nice work, @luvhrakhe )

Ultimately, this means that Chris will be back to hosting All In soon. In addition to his show, he has developed a few side projects. Since 2018, he has hosted the podcast Why Is This Happening? Although that work runs concurrently with his show, it doesn’t appear to be replacing it—at least not just yet.

Chris Hayes Career
For four years, Hayes wrote about local and national politics for the weekly independent newspaper “Chicago Reader,” a position he took on in August 2001. He was a senior editor and a Schumann Center Writing Fellow for four years at the Chicago-based magazine “In These Times,” starting in 2003. Chris served as the nonprofit media organization The Nation Institute’s Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow from 2006 to 2007. In November 2007, after contributing to “The Nation,” he was appointed as the organization’s Washington, D.C. editor.
In addition to serving as an adjunct English professor at Chicago’s St. Augustine College, Hayes was a Bernard L. Schwartz fellow at the New America Foundation’s think tank from 2008 to 2010. Additionally, he held a fellow position at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics.
While Rachel Maddow was serving as a guest host on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” in July 2010, Chris also frequently filled in for her when she was unable to host the show. In addition, he served as host of MSNBC programs including “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.”
From September 2011 to March 2013, he was the host of the weekend program “Up with Chris Hayes.” He gave Maddow credit for landing the hosting position, saying, “I absolutely would not be doing this if it weren’t for her.”
At the age of 34, Chris became the youngest host of a primetime TV program on any major cable news channel in the United States when he started hosting “All In with Chris Hayes” in April 2013. “All In with Chris Hayes” won the News & Documentary Emmy in 2015 and 2018. It has received multiple nominations for the award.
When it comes to the weekly podcast “Why Is This Happening?” which he started hosting in May 2018, Hayes “asks the big questions that keep him up at night.” Chris made 16 appearances on the NBC talk show “Late Night with Seth Meyers” between 2015 and 2022. In January 2021, Meyers informed Hayes that Chris was the program’s most frequent guest. Hayes has also made appearances on multiple episodes of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
