NBC reporter who vanished after retracted Paul Pelosi report returns to air

NBC News correspondent Miguel Almaguer, who mysteriously disappeared from the network's airwaves after his explosive Paul Pelosi report was retracted last month, finally — and quietly — returned on Monday.

More than five weeks have passed since Almaguer, a regular on the "Today" show, last appeared on NBC News, on Nov. 4.. Almaguer took a vacation to Europe after dropping a shocking report that suggested Mr. Pelosi might not have been in immediate danger when police arrived at his home the night he was assaulted. 

NBC News retracted the report that afternoon as it began to go viral and with just days to go before the midterm elections.

But Almaguer reappeared on the "Today" show on Monday, reporting on "coast-to-coast" winter storms across the United States. 

NBC shared a clip of the newly returned Almaguer but made no mention of the reporter's long and mysterious absence from the network. 

The last few posts on Almaguer’s Twitter account all center on the highly publicized assault of Pelosi at his home in San Francisco, until he broke his online silence Monday on a "Winter White Out."

Almaguer's most recent tweet before that focused on the "latest updates" in the investigation following the attack on Paul Pelosi.

NBC made no statement live on air about Almaguer's absence. 

He was reportedly suspended but NBC wouldn’t admit it on the record, and a local NBC affiliate in San Francisco reported essentially the same information as Almaguer but didn’t have it retracted. The word inside NBC was that Almaguer’s source was "biased," but NBC refused to explain what, if anything, was incorrect with his Nov. 4 report. Others felt NBC scrubbed it because it did not coincide with the mainstream narrative.

Almaguer, who has spent his time away from the spotlight on a European vacation, indicated on his personal Instagram account that he was in France in recent weeks, and Spain the week before that. 

The network morning show gave a much warmer welcome back to weatherman Al Roker, who had been recovering from a blood clot he experienced last month.

NBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital. 

Fox News’ David Rutz and Brian Flood contributed to this report.
