In the photo, “The Tamron Hall Show” host appears wearing a black mask right next to her friend, Melba’s owner, in order to keep herself safe from spreading the virus. Hall makes sure to be supportive of the Black community during these tough times.
She captioned the photo: “Under it all, I am smiling ear to ear. Supporting friends and the folks who feed us. Love you @melbasharlem #nyc. Summer in the city.”
After protests and activism against racism started to expand in the country, many Black-owned restaurants and shops began to have special support from different communities. This has been praised by African-American owners who have seen their profits grow, and consider this to be a way to lessen systemic racism.
WORK AT HOME
Ever since the COVID-19 changed the way people work around the globe, Hall has also found a way to manage her professional and personal life while it all happens in her own kitchen. As a mom and a journalist, the TV host has been learning about new strategies.

While working from home and broadcasting her talk show through Instagram Live, she faces many challenges like making sure her 1-year-old son, Moses eats at the right time and plays with her during breaks, or keeping her parrot from squawking, or arranging her spice rack.
However, Hall has said that she feels fortunate to have people that help her everyday like her husband, Steven Greener, and Moses’ babysitter. At work, she appreciates “The Tamron Hall Show's” newest executive producer, Candi Carter, who she considers a great leader and worker.
After several accusations were made on her, Hall openly denied in an IGTV video that she had fired twenty people from her talk show staff. “That story that I did not pay 20 people and fired them and left them hanging is a lie,” she started her speech in the video.
She continued by explaining that even though her team’s work for the season should have ended on June 5, she managed to extend payments until June 25. After the season was over, there were some changes that had to be done and she personally wrote an email to her employees to let them know.
She wrapped up the message by saying that she has a right to make things in her company better so we hope that in the end it all solves well and misunderstandings concerning this issue are clarified.
