Dr. Nancy Snyderman Still Hasn’t Returned to NBC After Breaking Ebola Quarantine (UPDATED)
It has been nearly two months since NBC News’ Dr. Nancy Snyderman was forced to apologize for allegedly breaking quarantine by going out in public after returning from Liberia, where she had interacted with freelancer photographer Ashoka Mukpo, who was diagnosed with Ebola and later transferred to the U.S. for treatment. But as CNN’s Brian Stelter reported at the end of Reliable Sources Sunday, she has still not returned to her role as on-air medical expert for the network.
It was previously reported that Snyderman would return to NBC sometime in November after network president Deborah Turness said she had encouraged Snyderman and her crew to take some time off. Following the 21-day incubation period, Snyderman was declared Ebola-free.
As for when she might return to her role at NBC News, Stelter reported sources who would only say she is expected to be back on the air “soon.” As he pointed out, Snyderman has been silent on social media since returning from Liberia.
UPDATE — Dec. 2, 3:45 p.m. ET: Fortune magazine is reporting that Snyderman will officially return to NBC News Wednesday morning, December 3, with an appearance on the Today show.
