Seth Meyers discussed with MSNBC's Chris Hayes the Late Night writer who ties them together
Writer Sal Gentile is the person chiefly responsible for Meyers' "Closer Look" segments, having previously worked as a producer on Hayes' MSNBC show . As Late Night producer Mike Shoemaker explains, "30 Rock full circle: @salgentile trains with @chrislhayes then he writes Closer Looks for @sethmeyers who goes on @allinwithchris to talk about @salgentile. It’s like how corruption works except the opposite."
