Your favorite news anchor is returning to daytime television with her own talk show! Tamron Hall, who hosts TV shows on cable, is taking her talents to ABC Network to develop a new daytime talk show.
The former co-host of NBC’s “The Today Show” and MSNBC anchor signed a deal with Disney/ABC to develop a syndicated daytime talk show. That’s a good move for her because there is more money in syndicated talk shows.
“I’m so thrilled to partner with Disney|ABC to create a daytime television show that’s unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw,” Hall said in a statement on Wednesday.
The 47-year-old Deadline: Crime host walked away from “The Today Show” in February 2017, after sources say she was “blindsided” by the news that she and co-host Al Roker were losing their daytime slot to former FOX News bigot Megyn Kelly — whose TV ratings eventually tanked.
Hall reportedly turned down a lucrative offer to stay with The Today Show, leaving millions of dollars on the table.
She said she is grateful to Disney/ABC for recognizing her worth.
“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,” said Hall on Wednesday. “I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it!”
