BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – MSNBC host Joy Reid closed her show Friday night by addressing the abrupt exit of her colleague Tiffany Cross.

“Before I go, I really do just want to say one quick thing about my friend, colleague and sister Tiffany Cross,” an emotional Reid began. “She’s not just my friend, she’s my sister. I love her, I support her, I was boosting for her to get the show that she created, the Cross Connection, which she put her heart and soul into everyday. Ok, her ratings sucked, but that applies to every show on this network. She is my friend and I’ll miss her, and I hope MSNBC gives a portion of her former salary to me… since they rightfully… gave her the boot.”
