Tamron Hall was meant to fill in for Lester Holt as anchor of “NBC Nightly News” on Thursday and Friday, sources said — but the network pulled Hall from the show upon learning the medical examiner’s report on Prince’s cause of death was leaked. 

Hall has revealed that she and the late singer shared a close relationship.

On Thursday, a report by the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Ramsey, Minn., revealed that the pop icon’s death was caused by an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl.

A source told us, “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.”
