Tamron Hall attends the American Ballet Theatre’s 2012 Gala at The Metropolitan Opera House on May 14, 2012 in New York City

*MSNBC Tamron Hall will moonlight for the Discovery Channel this fall in a new series that follows real homicide investigations.

The Texas-born journalist is hosting “Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall,” a 13-part series airing on Investigation Discovery (ID). Tamron knows first-hand the effect of violent crime; her older sister was a murder victim in a case that is still officially unsolved.

In each one-hour episode, Tamron is joined by a core team of correspondents with extensive knowledge of law enforcement to explore not only what happened in each case, 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.”

Going out of the studios and into the street to find answers, Tamron and the team of correspondents bring their personal points of view and signature styles to each story they cover. “Deadline: Crime” talks to 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.
