Chris Matthews is supposedly stepping down from MSNBC’s Hardball, amidst scrutiny of recent on-air remarks followed by speculation about certain behind-the-scenes behaviour, according to a news portal. Chris had earlier made some derogatory statements against a co-worker. The female journalist then reported this issue and therefore, Chris was forced to apologise for his actions. 

He, who is a veteran anchor, said on his program that he was leaving the cable-news outlet and will most likely put an end to the long-running show. The show ran on three different networks, and a news portal reported that the Monday broadcast will be Matthews' final broadcast, after which a new set of anchors will lead the slot previously held by Chris.

Chris started off his final segment revealing that he is indeed retiring. The anchor revealed that after having several talks with MSNBC, he has decided to step down and the Monday episode will be his last Hardball. He even mentioned that the reason for his departure is because of the younger anchors who are “ready to take the reins”.

The anchor further mentioned that the younger set of anchors come with better standards and also apologised for certain comments he had made in the past regarding women.

In less than two minutes, the veteran signed off and handed over the hour to anchor Steve Kornacki. Over the last couple of days, Matthews faced immense criticism over certain comments made on a political party. Just last week, the anchor was seen apologising for making awkward comparisons among some political leaders.

However, Matthew did apologise and expressed his grief over making such uncalled for and insensitive comments. Over the course of his career, he had made several uncalled for remarks against women. One such case surfaced when a journalist wrote to GQ about an incident alleging Mathews of inappropriate remarks, according to a news portal.
