I mentioned in Monday’s newsletter that NBC News’ Hallie Jackson was supposed to launch her daily NBC News NOW streaming show on Monday. But the debut has been delayed because Jackson is under the weather.

In an Instagram post, Jackson called it “the most spectacularly-ill-timed sick day of my career.”

She wrote, “Did I think I’d be running around prepping for our show launch instead of spending the morning trying to hold down shaky sips of water? Yes, yes I did. But apparently sometimes your body randomly decides to remind you how little control you actually have.”

Jackson thanked her colleagues and said she will see viewers “soon.”

She wrote, “And in the meantime, thanks for all the chicken soup vibes :)”
