Tamron Hall Heads to ABC
Former NBC Today Show host Tamron Hall has found a new home at a rival network: ABC. The 47-year-old has entered into a agreement with Disney to develop and create a syndicated daytime talk show, which she will host. The new program is expected to hit the airwaves in 2019. The Texas native and Temple University grad has recently been the host of Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall on Investigation Discovery, a series now in its fifth season. A sixth season is currently in production. “I’m so thrilled to partner with Disney|ABC to create a daytime television show that’s unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw,” said Hall. “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!” Prior to joining MSNBC in July 2007, Hall spent 10 years at WFLD in Chicago, where she held a number of positions including General Assignment Reporter, Consumer Reporter, and host of the three-hour Fox News in the Morning program. She also anchored weekday mornings and served as a noon anchor. More here.
