NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. actor and activist Alec Baldwin is to serve as the host of a weekly current events and culture talk show, MSNBC announced Thursday.

"Up Late w/Alec Baldwin" is to air Fridays from 10-11 p.m. ET., starting in October.

The announcement was made by Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC.

"After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I've developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field," said Baldwin in a statement. "I'm grateful to MSNBC for helping me bring a similar show to television."

"I've been talking with Alec for a while and can't wait to bring his personality and eclectic interests to MSNBC," said Griffin. "He's got such passion for ideas and what's going on in the world -- he's going to be a great addition to our line-up."
