Tamron Hall Quits 'The Today Show' After Learning Megyn Kelly Will Replace Her Time Slot

UPDATE: Al Roker addressed this story live on the air – watch here.

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.

News of Tamron leaving the networks comes a week after it was reported that Megyn Kelly would most like be taking over her Today Show time slot when Megyn joins the network in September.

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.”

    Seriously- so glad Tamron is leaving. She’s the worst. I have a feeling she was fired, but they are letting her keep her dignity.

    Unlikely, too abrupt of a departure to be fired in her position.

    She didnt quit. She was forced to make a choice. If nbc valued her presence they wouldnt have hired a known trouble maker to even be on the show. For my house, The Today show is out. My AM hours will now be CBS.
