MSNBC viewers wonder where is Kendis Gibson

Kendis Gibson usually appears on the Saturday and Sunday morning news on MSNBC. The past three weeks have seen the weekend anchor absent on air. This has not been lost on viewers.

On 5 December 2021, one viewer tweeted: “It’s been two weeks @kendisgibson. Do I need to send help? Or, make phone calls?!”

This tweet was ‘liked’ by Kendis Gibson, signalling that he’s aware of the viewership’s concerns, although he has yet to comment on them.

Another worried fan tweeted: “Have I missed something? Is Kendis okay?”

His last appearance was on Sunday, 21 November 2021.

What has Kendis been doing during his screen absence?

Some fans are under the assumption that Kendis Gibson is on vacation, however from Kendis’ social media, we can see that he is still in Manhattan, New York.

It is likely that Kendis is taking a holiday break in the city, although that has yet been confirmed by the anchor himself.

Over the past several weeks, Kendis has been active on both Twitter and Instagram suggesting all is well. He has also shared images from his dog Tito’s Instagram account. All recent images have been geo-tagged in New York.

Kendis Gibson has not announced that he is leaving MSNBC. In fact, both his Twitter and Instagram bios state he is an MSNBC anchor, suggesting he is merely taking a break from the network.

We hope to see Kendis back on our screens before the year is out!
