NBC News Anchor Pulled Off The Air Because Of Prince?

June 3, 2016
NBC News anchor Tamron Hall was supposed to anchor NBC Nightly News on Thursday and Friday this week, but wasn't on the air last night. It turns out it's related to Prince's death.

The big story yesterday was the medical examiner's report on Prince, and now Hall has confirmed that she had a close relationship with the late singer.

A source told Page Six“Tamron and NBC News execs discussed it and decided together it was best for her to not fill in [Thursday or Friday]. She’s been open about her friendship with Prince, so for her, this is more than a news story. She’ll fill in again soon.”
