Amid reports that MSNBC may overhaul a large portion of its programming, it's likely that the left-leaning network is about to cut ties with one of its most strident hosts.

On Thursday, the media news site Mediaite reported that MSNBC, under new leadership by NBC News Chairman Andy Lack, is canceling at least three of its shows. Among them, the talk show "The Cycle," where Toure Neblett, once a flame-throwing commentator, particularly on racial issues, resides as a co-host.

"The question is asked, what does he bring to the table?" one source inside MSNBC said to the Washington Examiner media desk.

If "The Cycle" is canceled, Neblett would appear to be out of a job, unless he is demoted to a contributor role or roving correspondent position, as has happened to other former hosts at MSNBC.

But unlike Ronan Farrow and Joy Reid, who had their low-rated shows canceled in February and named special correspondents, Neblett has not cultivated his own loyal following.

And Neblett's career trajectory at MSNBC has been on a decline over the last year. In May 2014, he stopped using Twitter, a place he regularly made inflammatory comments about race and politics.

His latest tweet reads, "I am very sorry and will make sure this doesn't happen again."

The apology was in response to backlash from some of his followers, after he tweeted something deemed anti-Semitic. "The power of whiteness," Neblett had said, responding to someone who had shared a story about his parents surviving a Nazi Germany concentration camp.

Since then, Neblett has maintained a relatively unremarkable profile on MSNBC, shying away from controversial statements he once made on a regular basis.

Before that episode on Twitter, in December 2013, he also made controversial comments to Fox News anchor Megan Kelly, who had asserted at the time that Santa Claus is white.

"I don't want my kids worshipping some white dude who flies in to give them stuff," Neblett had said. "The insistence he's not black and can't be black strikes me as an attempt to perpetuate white supremacy and to posit that whiteness is somehow normal and central while blackness is other or different."

Neblett's newfound apparent aversion to controversy coincides with MSNBC's pivot over the last year from emphasizing liberal commentary to more news programming.

Mediaite reported this week that in addition to "The Cycle," MSNBC will also replace the liberal talk shows "The Ed Show" on primetime and "Now with Alex Wagner" on daytime.

The network recently announced that fallen NBC "Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams will become its breaking news anchor, lending some needed gravitas to MSNBC. And it was reported that NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd will be given his own show.

A spokeswoman for MSNBC did not return a request for comment.
