Egyptian-American journalist Ayman Mohyeldin will anchor a new show on MSNBC’s newly-launched web channel, the reporter said in posts on his social media accounts.

Mohyeldin, who rose to prominence following his coverage of the Gaza war over the summer for NBC News, will host “Roadmap,” a show which will “discuss the complex international issues unfolding in the world.”

The show “will also profile those who are working to address them [the issues], in some cases by ‘doing good’ beyond their hometowns,” he said.

Moheyldin, who is now based in New York, and his team have received several awards for their coverage of events in the Middle East.

“I am excited to announce that I'm hosting a new program on @msnbc's newly launched digital channel Shift,” his Instagram post read.

The channel, called “Shift,” combines live news and short documentaries with original shows that focus on sports, economics, politics and other topics, the Associated Press reported.

The slate of programming runs Mondays through Fridays as a channel apart from the existing MSNBC.com.

Besides its role as an additional information resource, Shift is designed as a site for developing new series that might make their way to the MSNBC cable channel.

Shift follows last month's introduction of CBSN, a digital streaming network that features live, anchored coverage by CBS News each weekday.
