NBC Pulls Tamron Hall From “Nightly News” Over Prince Overdose

This is a big blower on all fronts… Tamron Hall ended up losing out on a check after the medical examiner released the news her former beau Prince died of an overdose.

According to Page Six reports, NBC originally planned to have Tamron Hall fill in for Lester Holt on “NBC Nightly News” this Thursday and Friday according to sources, but the network decided not to use her after the medical examiner’s report on Prince’s cause of death was leaked. You may recall Hall has spoken openly about her relationship with Prince in the past.

The Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Ramsey, Minnesota released their report Thursday revealing Prince’s death was caused by an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl.

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.”

Hall has recalled of her last talk with the singer: “He assured me he was OK . . . He kept saying he was fine and asked me to come to Paisley [Park] . . . It was a sweet moment, and I had no idea it would be our last time talking. I never imagined it.”

A source told us, “She’s told colleagues she had never seen him use drugs, or saw signs of it.”

Do you think Tamron and NBC made the right move? We love to see Tamron on TV whether it’s morning noon or night, but it definitely seems like she was too close to her work in this case.
