Tamron Hall To Host 'Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall' On Investigation Discovery

MSNBC's Tamron Hall will have a new show called "Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall" this fall.

The Grio reported Thursday that Hall will host an hour-long 13-part series for Investigation Discovery, in addition to hosting "NewsNation" on MSNBC. The show, according to the network, will delve into crimes, and "why it happened, and how it was investigated." Hall will be joined by correspondents specializing in law enforcement, as well as detectives, prosecutors and psychological profilers, criminals and their victims.

Discovery Network mentioned Hall's experience with the tragic murder of her older sister in a statement announcing the series. Hall opened up about her sister, who was a victim of domestic violence, several years ago.

"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, the president of 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."
