First Look is an early morning news program on MSNBC airing live at 5am ET/2am PT. It is hosted primarily by Lynn Berry with Christina Brownanchoring on an occassional basis.

First Look consists of many of the same segments and is produced by the same staff as NBC News's early morning news program Early Today; some segments, such as a local weather cut-in and some feature stories, are either excluded or changed for the MSNBC broadcast, along with the anchor background (an early morning skycam shot of Manhattan on First Look, and sunrise scenes for Early Today) and graphical styling. A replay of First Look was aired at 5:30am ET before July 27, 2009, when Way Too Early with Willie Geist premiered.

The program was put on a short-term hiatus by the network to test a 5am replay of both Countdown with Keith Olbermann and The Rachel Maddow Show at various times from February-April 2009; the program was restored after that.

International broadcasts

MSNBC and NBC News programming is shown for several hours a day on the 24 hour news network Orbit News in Europe and the Middle East. This includes First Look.
