After we reported that Ed Schultz will be taking over MSNBC's 6PM hour from David Shuster, MSNBC announced that it would also be shuffling its dayside anchor lineup: Shuster will be joining Tamron Hall from 3-5PM, while Norah O'Donnell will be moved from 3PM to an unannounced morning hour.
The move, according to the New York Post's Page Six, has the affable O'Donnell — known for her big laugh — in tears:
"It's ridiculous," an insider said. "They told us all about the changes at 8:50 p.m. -- 10 minutes before they told the rest of the world. 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 recently celebrated her 10th anniversary with NBC News.
This isn't the first time Page Six has reported on tension inside 30 Rock following a big NBC News move first reported on this site.
In December, we reported that David Gregory would be named moderator of "Meet the Press;" the gossip column ran an item later that week saying that MSNBC infighting was "at a new peak" and that network brass blamed Chuck Todd for the leak.
Watch O'Donnell look back on her ten years with NBC News below:
