How to Contact MSNBC News

By Jill Leviticus

Perhaps you have a breaking news tip, an important photograph to share or want to comment on an article or news story on MSNBC, but don't know whom to contact. Because MSNBC operates both a television news channel and a news website, it can be hard to determine exactly which department would handle your query. Luckily, the 24-hour news service offers a number of ways to contact staffers working on a variety of shows and broadcasts.

Things You'll Need

  • Email address for writer/show

Step 1

Get in touch with the author of an article on the MSNBC website by clicking on the name listed on the top of the article. This should take you to an email address, although according to MSNBC, not every writer has an email address.

Step 2

Send a letter to MSNBC if you can't find an email address for an MSNBC writer. Letters can be sent to: MSNBC on the Internet, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052. If you are writing about a particular article, be sure to include the URL. (You can find the URL in the web address bar at the top of your Internet browser.)

Step 3

Click on the "discuss story" button at the bottom of MSNBC.com news articles to add your comments to the comment section. After you click "Discuss," a box will appear for your comments. When you are finished posting, click the "Post Your Comment" button.

Step 4

Email the staff at one of the MSNBC news shows by clicking on MSNBC TV from the list of NBC shows on the top of the MSNBC website. Each individual news show is displayed. If you click on the show that interests you, you will usually find an email address for that show in an "About Us" section.

Step 5

Write to MSNBC TV if you prefer not to email. The MSNBC TV address is: 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, N.Y. 10112

Step 6

Dial (212) 664-4444 to speak to someone at MSNBC news if you have important information and can't wait for a response to an email or letter.
