With the help of Disney and ABC, former MNSBC news anchor Tamron Hall is taking her nose for the news to daytime TV.
After exiting stage left from NBC and MSNBC, Shadow and Act reports Hall just inked a new deal with Disney for a new daytime talk show. Hall left her former network after they cut her and Al Roker from the Today show for Megyn Kelly.
“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,” said Janice Marinelli, president, Global Content Sales and Distribution, Direct-to-Consumer and International of The Walt Disney Company.
Senior Vice President of ABC Daytime, William Burton, said, “Tamron’s wealth of experience and unique perspective is needed in today’s daytime landscape. We look forward to developing a daily destination showcasing her spirit, boundless enthusiasm and powerful ability to engage with viewers.”
Tamron even chimed in herself, saying, “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.”
There’s no word on what Tamor’s talk show will be called, but it’s sure to be something that embodies her personality and need to know the news.
