With the popularity of MSNBC soaring, it makes sense that the network’s talent would be tapped to spread the wealth.
Discovery Communications has announced (h/t Indie Wire) that MSNBC’s Tamron Hall will be hosting a new show on Investigation Discovery (ID) called Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall, starting this fall. It’s a 13-part series, each part is one hour, and each episode will take a detailed look at a crime and “explore not only what happened, but why it happened, and how it was investigated.”
The release points out that Hall is uniquely qualified to host a show focused on law enforcement and investigative procedure because she’s had a personal tragedy: her sister was murdered and the case remains unsolved.
This new program is brought to you by NBC’s Peacock Productions.
Total aside, that first line in the Indie Wire story (“One of the reasons why MSNBC is quite possibly the *blackest* cable news network broadcasting right now…) is a weird one, no? Besides the awkward wording, it has little to do with the announcement.
