In celebration of reporter Thomas Roberts’ forthcoming assignment to host MSNBC’s Way Too Early show, his production team compiled a list of highlights from his tenure as anchor of the 11 a.m. hour of MSNBC Live.

The reel includes memories of the gay journalist’s recent marriage to Patrick Abner, behind-the-scenes footage from his role as a judge of the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, a snake-haired Halloween costume that he describes as a “Mandusa,” and, appropriately, a rendition of “So Long, Farewell” from The Sound of Music.

Roberts will begin hosting Way Too Early Monday. The 30-minute news show airs weekdays at 5:30 a.m. Eastern on MSNBC.
