New York City, NY, United States (4E) – Tamron Hall just discovered that she will be losing her timeslot at the “Today” show minutes before she went on air so she announced that she will be parting ways with NBC and MSNBC.
According to reports, the slot held by Hall and her co-anchor Al Roker will be taken by Megyn Kelly. Kelly recently transferred to NBC News after she left Fox News. Accordingly, 46-year-old hall was hurt and offended with what happened that she opted not to stay even if she was offered a multi-million dollar contract. She will officially be leaving the network after her contract expires this month.
An insider shared on how Hall knew about them being removed off the air, “Tamron has been anchoring all over the network in the past few weeks, filling in for Savannah Guthrie and for Lester Holt in addition to MSNBC. And just a few days ago, she received an email from the executive producer congratulating the 9 a.m. team for being No. 1 for the last seven weeks. Then on Friday, minutes before going on MSNBC they told her that she and Al are being taken off the air.” Conflicting reports claimed that her agent and not NBC broke the news to he before she went on air on MSNBC.
Another source said that although Hall might have been annoyed about Kelly being part of NBC, she did not show it on camera. It also remains unconfirmed if her exit is really due to Kelly taking on their timeslot but an insider noted that there is bad blood.
Hall became part of MSNBC and NBC in 2007 and later became part of the “Today” team by 2014. In a statement released by Hall, she said that the last 10 years with the network has been beyond anything she could have imagined and she is grateful for that. She added, “I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”
