Lawrence O'Donnell on extended leave following taxi accident

Posted on

MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell is taking a leave for several weeks as he recuperates from injuries sustained Saturday in a taxi accident while vacationing abroad, EW confirmed.

The MSNBC host’s brother Michael was also injured, and the two are both expected to make a full recovery.

“Our thoughts and support are with the O’Donnell family and we look forward to having Lawrence back on the air soon,” MSNBC said in a statement.

Alex Wagner is expected to fill-in for O’Donnell during the 10 p.m. ET time slot Monday and Tuesday this week with Ari Melber taking Wednesday and Thursday.
