“I will have more to say about the 3p time-slot in the coming weeks. I’m working with [NBC News president] Steve [Capus] and his outstanding team to develop a new show in that hour.”
Update: The “Steve” in that quote is actually the 3 PM EP Steve Friedman, not Capus, so it could end up being an opinion show. We will find out soon enough…
The implication there is that the 3 PM hour will be filled by a news program, not an opinion program, and that it will likely be a new anchor, not a current one. Given that the 1-2PM and 2-3PM hours are news shows, anchored by Andrea Mitchell and Tamron Hall, it makes sense to have a news show at 3 PM too.
