We’re calling BS on part of a Page Six item from this morning that claimed, because of anchor changes at MSNBC, Washington-based anchor Norah O’Donnell was left out in the cold. An “insider” told the Post:
And poor Norah. What’s she going to do now? She’s been crying all night and day. Just out of the blue, they take her show away. Nice, real nice.
O’Donnell responds to TVNewser, “I am disappointed that Richard Johnson didn’t call me directly. His report is incorrect. I have three children under two years old. I usually spend my free time changing poopy diapers – and that report belongs in the diaper champ with those diapers. I look forward to my new hour in the mornings!”
The announcement of Ed Schultz taking over at 6pm made mention of anchors David Shuster and Tamron Hall anchoring from 3-5pmET, bumping O’Donnell’s 3pm hour. So there will be some shuffling yet to come and we hear an announcement could come as early as next week. Stay tuned.
