Dr. Nancy Snyderman Leaving NBC News
The doctor is out at NBC News. NBC's Chief Medical Editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman is leaving her post after nine years to return to teaching after last year's Ebola scandal.
Snyderman made direct reference to the episode in a statement announcing her resignation Thursday. She said covering the Ebola epidemic last fall, and then becoming part of the story upon her return to the U.S., contributed to her decision to return to academic medicine. In a follow up statement, NBC called Snyderman a "valuable voice" both on air and in its newsroom, wishing her all the best.
Snyderman made headlines late last year when she and members of an NBC News crew were quarantined after their return from West Africa where a cameraman tested positive for Ebola.
The doctor became the focus of much criticism, however, when she was spotted outside of a New Jersey restaurant in violation of the quarantine. (Metro Networks Inc.)
