Tamron Hall Returning to TV With Daytime Talk Show
Tamron Hall, who was formerly was part of the Today show team, is developing her own syndicated talk show at ABC.
She surprisingly left NBC News in 2017, right before Megyn Kelly made her 9am TV debut, but Hall is still part of Investigation Discovery network. She’s been host of Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall since 2013.
“We are incredibly excited to partner with Tamron and look forward to bringing a fresh, new daytime talk show to stations across the country that will showcase her enormous talent and dynamic personality,” Janice Marinelli, president, Global Content Sales and Distribution, Direct-to-Consumer and International, of The Walt Disney Company said to Deadline.
Hall joined NBC in 2014, also serving as anchor and political reporter for MSNBC in addition to anchoring the third hour of Today with Al Roker. Before that, Hall worked at WFLD in Chicago for a decade.
“Tamron’s wealth of experience and unique perspective is needed in today’s daytime landscape,” William Burton, senior vice president, ABC Daytime, added. “We look forward to developing a daily destination showcasing her spirit, boundless enthusiasm and powerful ability to engage with viewers.”
Hall confirmed the good news: “I’m so thrilled to partner with Disney ABC to create a daytime television show that’s unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw. My new partners appreciate and respect the relationship I’ve built with my audience and know that if we create television worth watching, they’ll join us for the ride. I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it.”
