Almost two years after leaving “Today,” Tamron Hall is finally returning to Daytime television with a syndicated show. The renowned TV personality shares more details on her new project.

When Hall, 48, left the “Today” show and NBC in January 2017, a lot of fans were outraged. It wasn’t only because Hall had been the first black woman to occupy an anchor seat on the show, but also because there were talks that her 9 am slot was being given to Megyn Kelly, a white woman who has been accused several times of racism.

Hall fans can now rest easy now because the TV host has announced her return to Daytime television. She tweeted yesterday:

“Exciting #MondayMorning news! Thrilled to announce that @Hearst Television Stations will be airing my new @Disney /ABC syndicated talk show next fall. Looking forward to sharing stories about extraordinary people and building our community, where everyone is invited every day.”



In a video clip accompanying the announcement, Hall said:

“I’m the girl next door. I’m the girl from the underdog background, but that doesn’t make me extraordinary. That makes me like my neighbors who are also the girls and guys next door. …We are the people next door; all we have to do is open the door.”

Variety also reports that Hall’s new show will be broadcast to over 50% of U.S households, thanks to a new deal struck between Disney and Hearst Television.

"...There is no place on our air or in this workplace for them.”

Hall left “Today” after it was revealed that her slot on the show would be taken over by Megyn Kelly, who was formerly at Fox News. Reports also indicated that NBC would be paying Kelly close to $20 million, a lot less than what they were paying Hall.



Hall, however, took the development in good faith and, in a statement about her departure, said:

"The last ten years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. 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."

Between then and now, the award-winning journalist has given more of her time to advocacy for domestic violence victims, a cause she reveals is inspired by her sister who was in an abusive relationship and eventually murdered.

We're sure fans cannot wait to have the engaging Hall back on TV.



Meanwhile, Kelly found herself in hot water after making racially insensitive comments on air in October.

Kelly’s future at NBC had reportedly been shaky due to unimpressive ratings, so when the racism-related incident occurred, it was the last straw.

NBC News chairman, Andrew Lack, reacted to the issue firmly, saying:

“There is no other way to put this, but I condemn those remarks. There is no place on our air or in this workplace for them.”
