Tamron Hall just made her newest talk show debut, and she opened up about her recent NBC "Today" show firing and how it took a toll on her.


The award-winning broadcast journalist is now doing business on her own terms, hosting her own show after being "demoted" from "Today" show. Recalling the difficult time in her life, she says at one point, she felt hopeless.

"Inside, I was falling apart."

Addressing the Controversy

Before moving on to other topics, Hall made sure to address her controversial exit from the show before anyone could make assumptions. She said:

“I go into work one day. I left fired. ‘Demoted’ I guess is what they called it. I called it fired."

While she kept her cool during those moments, she revealed to her audience that she felt horrible and was falling apart on the inside.


On NBC's Choice of Replacing Her

Three years after her exit from NBC, Tamron Hall remains certain that the executives made the wrong choice by replacing her with Megyn Kelly.

Hall left NBC in early 2017 after the network revealed that her timeslot on "Today" would be replaced by Megyn Kelly.

"Inside, I was falling apart. I had worked since I was 14."

However, just a year after putting Kelly on the show, NBC canceled her segment following her controversial remarks about various topics and because of fans' criticism from the beginning.

Moving Forward from NBC

When asked about her departure from "Today" during ABC's Television Critics Association summer tour, Tamron was certain the network made the wrong choice by allowing her to leave.


“Megyn’s success or not, I already knew they made the wrong choice when I left the door. I would never measure myself against her success or perceived lack thereof. Whether that show made it or not, I knew I was making the right decision for me.”

Although it hurt for her to be taken out of NBC after a decade of working there, it all ended up well for Tamron, who now has her own show which she runs by herself.
