Those curious enough to tune in this week to Ronan Farrow Daily, the new afternoon show for millennials on MSNBC, learned instantly that its host is handsome, charismatic, and intelligent. It's obvious. But keen-eyed observers have picked up a bit more about the precocious 26-year-old's biography and interests via the word cloud set within the world map behind him on the show's futuristic set, which doubles as a giant résumé.
"The words are just general terms about the show," said MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski in an email to Daily Intelligencer. "Sometimes they touch on worlds Ronan has moved in as we roll out the show. They mainly focus on the news and the show’s reporting."
