Tamron Hall, Al Roker

Tamron Hall fans are buzzing after she posed with former NBC colleague Al Roker in a photo posted on her Instagram account last week.

The photo sparked speculation that Hall and Roker were celebrating former NBC host Megyn Kelly's termination. Fans also hoped the photo was a hint that Hall may return to NBC.

Hall, who is pictured above with Roker, left, and Natalie Morales, center, quit her anchor position and declined to accept a demotion when Kelly signed a $69 million contract in January. Roker accepted the demotion on the Today Show to make room for Kelly's new daytime talk show The Kelly Files.

Kelly was terminated a few days after she commented about wearing blackface makeup for Halloween.

In the photo caption, Hall writes:

"Smiling ear to ear tonight after seeing @alroker light up the stage in @waitressmusical!! Bravo to the entire cast. What a show and yes Mr. Roker sings!!!!! True #icon. Blessed to know you, sir."

    "Tamron Hall, Al Roker Celebrated Halloween Like Everyone Else"
    There ya go, Stretch Armstrong. I fixed it for ya. No mention of Megyn Kelly in the caption, no reference made to her in either photo. Please just stop with all the reaching before you hurt yourself.

  • Dun Dilly

    Both Tamron and Al were over loyal to NBC. AL stayed EVEN after the demotion.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Looks like a Halloween celebration with a good time had by all. No love lost for Meghan though. I'm sure they are very happy with her being given the boot. ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    No tears being shed for Meghan. Even Meghan's not shedding tears for Meghan! Didn't she walk away with 64 million and the 10 million dollar bonus?.?

  • Quitedeliteful

    She did get her money but she also got the boot. Small but significant victory...

  • Jethro

    Damn, two friends can't even take a pic together w/o folks trying to read ill **** all into it.

  • Elevated Soul

    What's the point of celebrating a woman who will still be getting paid 69 million dollars after being fired?

    Are both of these racists celebrating because they got demoted?

    Are both of these racists celebrating because they were jealous of Megyn Kelly?....Again what is the point here? Celebrating someone else demise is just karma waiting to happen. Megyn Kelly will be alright.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    All I read was they cut the black peoples paychecks to make room for Megyns racist axx and it blew up in her face and NBCs. God don't like ugly and issa buncha ugly mfs running around here thinking they wont touched..

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Like the sun rises and sets on her axx? Like what if, just what if, folks were actually just minding their business....

  • Y me?

    They weren't thinking about megyn kelly. That's more of sandras click bait mess. Read the caption. They were celebrating al rokers Broadway performance

  • Sid

    Won’t he do it lol. Tamron knows lol

  • Trace da Ace

    awww I love me some Tamron Hall!!!hope she makes them pay her double if not triple the amount Kelly was getting....she is so worth it!!!

  • Li-Wright

    NBC handled the whole Megyn thing badly. She shouldn't have bumped the 9am show that was already running and getting good ratings. They should have given her a Dateline type show where she investigated and interviewed people. Everybody wants a talk show....geez! it's too much.

  • NaeNae2015

    I beleive NBC wanted to get rid of Megyn and just used this as an excuse!!

  • KLo

    glad that white trash was fired

  • Jussjess25

    And made a fake plan so she could get paid because she was under contract and refused to leave otherwise.

  • laidbackgal4real

    69 million dollars ....That Kelly still wins ?

  • Shira Harding-James

    People reach soooooo far
    She’s supporting her friend

  • Shira Harding-James

    She was supporting her friend at his event, you know because that’s what friends do. If anything was celebrated it was the success of the show Al was in

  • Rayne

    Love Tamron and Al. Al seems like a sweetheart.

  • SmartAtheist

    Tamron Hall is a straight up babe and she's great at her job too so there you go. I'm not a fan of that asymmetrical comb her hair straight up in the front do she sometimes rocks, it's just distracting IMO. Other than that though she's serious babealicious in my book OMG.

  • Waya Hedia

    Which racist comments would that be?

  • Waya Hedia

    Tamron has been everywhere, starting out at MSNBC. She has reached the top of her game because as pretty as she is, she's just another teleprompter reader. Really just a bland personality. Al Roker reached the top of his career 20 years ago.

    Megyn is an obnoxious brat but she's rich as hell now and really doesn't ever have to work again.

    They hired Megy because she was anti-Trump at FOX and was part of the army of brats complaining about Roger Ailes. They didn't really give a hoot if she was any good or not.

  • EMILY POST

    Thats so bizarre they are celebrating. It says a lot more about the company they work for then Meghan Kelly .
    NBC needs to stop using blacks to their dirty work they only hired Meghan to get back at Fox because they were getting beat in the ratings. They werent that into Meghan and her ratings sucked so they used it as the who blackface statement as a way to oust her. NBC is not impressive they need to grow some and stop exploiting blacks and their hardships to handle their Personnel concerns. Always so Polarizing those snakes in Hollywood are.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    I read somewhere that she still got the remainder of her multimillion dollar contract Paid to her. I was like u got fired for sounding stupid and voicing her ignorance but still walked away with the money so..... what happened? Was she disciplined or got an easy payday?
    Please fire me and send the remaining paychex to me while I sleep in while having ice cream and vodka for breakfast in bed. Please.

    ...or does it not work like that & I missed something about her termination? ...it sounds like my Dream firing.,fire me!send the remaining millions by draft or direct deposit ...

  • Faux Gibbler

    See how Roker dresses up as other characters different from his race? Notice how he don’t paint his face? You can dress up as people of color just don’t paint your face.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Her contract was guaranteed.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Yep. Just cuz you’re Anti Trump don’t mean you’re gonna be a good hire.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Not true actually. Tamron still had her contract. But Tamron chose to walk away . Smart woman.

  • Faux Gibbler

    LOL iKR

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Paid in regular payday increments? Lumpsum?...no protection(s) for doing something heinous? ...I can't believe they don't have a heinous action clause(or something ) to preempt people from acting out and going home to shop after the contract is terminated but the payday is guaranteed. ..

    **I'm just lightweight being nosy,

  • Blue

    Tamron is gohjus?

  • Faux Gibbler

    Technically opinions are protected under free speech. The real is NBC trying to be the hero here. They knew what Megyn stood for and still hired her.
