Tamron Hall Quits 'The Today Show' After Learning Megyn Kelly Will Replace Her Time Slot
The Today Show is facing a serious hosting shakeup.
NBC announced that Tamron Hall has decided to leave her jobs at NBC and MSNBC after 10 years.
“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,” NBC said in a statement.
People Magazine also reports that Tamron was offered a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract to stay with the network, but still decided to leave.
The 46-year-old reporter joined NBC and MSNBC in 2007 before joining The Today Show in 2014 where she hosted the third hour of the show alongside Al Roker.
Tamron released a statement through the network regarding her departure where she said, “The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. 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.”
