Meet MSNBC's newest news anchors: Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle.

Ruhle anchors the 9 a.m. hour and Velshi anchors the 3 p.m. hour for MSNBC during the work week. The pair also co-hosts a program at 11 a.m., and they have their own Saturday show, "Velshi & Ruhle," which airs at 12:30 p.m.

Before joining MSNBC, both hosts were reporters who focused on business news. Ruhle worked at Bloomberg TV as a managing editor and news anchor. Velshi worked for CNN as the network's chief business correspondent before joining Al Jazeera America when it first launched. Six months after Al Jazeera ceased operations in the U.S. in April 2016, Velshi joined MSNBC.
