NBC's "Today" morning talk show on Feb. 24, made the announcement that 43-year-old Tamron Hall is joining the family. She has been named a co-host of "Today's Take" during the 9 a.m. hour of the morning talk show. She joins the other three co-hosts: Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist.
Hall is no stranger to the "Today" show. She has often filled in on the show performing duties such as reading the news, covering special events like the Golden Globes, and spotlighting buzzy social media trends in the Orange Room digital studio.
Executive producer, Don Nash said:
“We’re really excited to officially welcome Tamron into the "Today" family. She brings wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility to an all-around fantastic team, and I think Tamron, Al, Natalie and Willie will have a lot of fun together hosting the third hour.”
Hall will still host her show "NewsNation" on MSNBC in addition to hosting "Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall" on Investigation Discovery.
Surely, Hall is equipped to be a success on the "Today" show as well as continuing to succeed on her other two shows. She has been reporting since she earned her degree in broadcast journalism at Temple University in Philadelphia and began her reporting career at KBTX -TV in Bryan, Texas. From there, she moved on to KTVT-TV in Dallas and to WFLD-TV in Chicago, where she worked for 10 years and covered Chicago politics.
Congratulations, Tamron. We will be watching you.
