No question about it, Alec Baldwin is not shy about sharing his opinions — and now he’ll have a national platform to do it on.

The actor — who has been hosting the “Here’s The Thing” podcast on WNYC in New York for the past two years — will launch a current affairs and culture show on MSNBC this fall.

The network announced Thursday that “Up Late w/Alec Baldwin” will debut in October. The show is scheduled to air from 9 to 10 p.m. on Fridays.

In a statement the Emmy-winning “30 Rock” star said, “After two seasons of my WNYC podcast, I’ve developed a fondness for hosting a show that involved talking with smart, talented and engaging people in every imaginable field.”

It’s expected that Baldwin’s cable TV program will be similar to his podcast — where he has tackled news issues and interviewed other stars.
