Following the bump from the 9AM slot, Today, Tamron Hall has left NBC News. It was recently announced that Megyn Kelly is replacing Tamron in the third hour of the morning show.
Tamron co-hosted the 9AM hour of Today and was in talks to appear on the 7-9AM show as well as continue her MSNBC program. With this exit, Al Roker will now be manning the fort solo until Megyn Kelly joins the lineup in the fall.
Per NBC News’ official statement:
“Tamron Hall will be leaving NBC News and MSNBC when her contract expires this month. Yesterday was her last day as an anchor on both networks. Tamron is an exceptional journalist, we valued and enjoyed her work at TODAY and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay. We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.
Tamron joined MSNBC and NBC in 2007, and became part of the TODAY team in 2014. She has also worked passionately to bring awareness to domestic violence, highlighting the issue on her show “Deadline Crime, with Tamron Hall.” She earned an Edward R. Murrow Award for a story that aired on NBC News, and an Emmy in 2010 as a member of NBC News’ live inauguration coverage.
Al Roker will continue to co-host TODAY’s Take at 9am weekdays until a new morning lineup begins in the Fall of 2017.
