MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin recently sent a viral shockwave through the cable news and internet realms when he randomly asked the Bishop T.D. Jakes to pray on live TV.

In an interview with The Pure Flix Podcast, Melvin revealed that the incredibly viral moment was “totally unscripted” and that he hadn’t told producers beforehand.
