MSNBC’s Tamron Hall will soon take on double duty hosting a new show. The current host of NewsNation has been tapped to be the face of Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall, an hour-long 13-part series that is set to air on Investigation Discovery (ID) in the fall.
The Texas-born journalist will be joined by a team of correspondents with extensive knowledge of law enforcement. The show will include insight from detectives, prosecutors and psychological profilers as well as criminals and their victims to reveal what caused people to turn to crime and whether justice was ultimately served.
Discovery Network revealed more details about the series via a recent press release:
Tamron Hall, the respected network and investigative journalist, who knows first-hand the effect of violent crime. Tamron’s older sister was a murder victim in a case that is still officially unsolved. DEADLINE: CRIME goes beyond the headlines to explore not only what happened, but why it happened, and how it was investigated.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tamron Hall to the ID family as host of this fast-paced, hard-hitting investigative magazine show,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. “Given Tamron’s own personal tragic experience and vested interest in finding justice for other victims and their families, Tamron will provide the unique personal perspective that our audience so appreciates.”
Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall is produced for Investigation Discovery by NBC News’ Peacock Productions with executive producer Loren Michelman.
