Tamron Hall Leaving NBC In Wake Of Network Canceling Her Hour Of ‘Today’:
Tamron Hall, a regular host on NBC’s “Today” show and MSNBC, is leaving the network later this month.
Her departure was announced on Wednesday after days of contentious contract negotiations.
Hall had been the co-host of the 9 a.m. hour of the “Today” show and a daytime anchor on MSNBC. Last week executives informed Hall and the “Today” staff that the 9 a.m. hour was being canceled to make room for a new program led by former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
Hall won’t have a chance to say goodbye on the air. “Yesterday was her last day as an anchor on both networks,” NBC said in a statement. “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.”
It is unclear if Hall has another television news job lined up.
