She came onto media from her first radio show which was 1999 WRNX (100.9 FM). After hosting some radio programs Maddow later joined New Air America for which she worked until 2008 when she finally signed her first TV assignment with MSNBC. During the year 2005, she was also among the panelists for “Tucker”, an MSNBC show. She became the substitute host for the show, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann, ” which was her first program ever. The program became a hit among audiences and Olbermann encouraged her to get her own show at MSNBC. That’s when the “Rachel Maddow Show’ finally began airing and replaced “Verdict with Dan Adams”.
The show was a success and the audiences for the show doubled. Eventually, she became the first openly gay/lesbian host of a primetime news program.
Incidentally, that’s part of why witnesses are supposed to be protected. It’s not just about their physical safety, it’s also about treatment of them (by parties related to the matter they witnessed) that’s designed to queer the case.
