Tamron Hall Leaves NBC After Network Gives Slot to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly
Tamron Hall has been a part of the NBC family for 10 years. Now, that relationship has come to an end.
The news came less than a week after NBC announced that Megyn Kelly would be coming to host an hour of the Today Show, essentially replacing Hall and her co-anchor Al Roker, according to People.
“The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful,” Hall, 46, said in a statement released via the network. “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.”
Hall’s contract with the network expires this month after she turned down NBC’s multi-year, multimillion dollar offer to stay on the network.
“Yesterday was her last day as an anchor on both networks,” reads a statement from NBC News. “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.”
Roker, her co-anchor of three years, took the time to wish her a farewell on the air this morning.
Meanwhile, get ready see Megyn Kelly every morning. Whoopee…
