Our friend and esteemed executive producer Chris Licht spent his last day on Morning Joe behind the controls today. It was an emotional day indeed. He leaves us after four years at the helm. We paid him a little tribute today at the end of the show, and then we took him out for a much-deserved breakfast. We wish him well in his new role.

Some of you may remember Chris from this appearance on the show last year. He even wrote a book about the experience. He also pops up pretty much daily appearance on the control room camera.

And some of you may even remember when his lil’ man Andrew made an appearance on the show in 2009. It’s with a heavy heart that we let him go.

Take care, Chris. We’ll be watching.

Goodbye and good luck to Chris Licht
