NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News medical reporter Nancy Snyderman will be back on the network Wednesday, ending a period where she had been shelved after violating a voluntary quarantine following possible Ebola exposure.

A network executive who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was a personnel matter said Tuesday that Snyderman will report on a medical issue for the “Today” show and NBC’s “Nightly News.”

There was some question about whether Snyderman would ever return to NBC News. When she was spotted getting takeout food from a New Jersey restaurant during a period where she was supposed to stay in her house, it drew an angry response from viewers online.

Snyderman had been in Africa reporting on Ebola. A cameraman working for NBC News with Snyderman contracted Ebola, but he has since recovered.
