The show will cover current events and human interest stories, as well as feature in-depth celebrity interviews, according to a press release.
The announcement comes nearly six months after Hall left NBC when she was told that her third hour of the Today Show would be axed to make way for Megyn Kelly’s new daytime offering.
Hall’s as-yet-untitled show doesn’t have a network or a premiere date yet, but it’s possible that it could head-to-head with Kelly’s, which premieres in the fall.
On Instagram, Hall posted a picture of the Hollywood Reporter story announcing the new show, and wrote: ‘When the right call comes #grateful’. Her former Today Show co-star Savannah Guthrie was one of the more than 13,000 users who liked the post.
Today’s Hoda Kotb also chimed in to wish her congratulations on Twitter, as did MSNBC contributor Jonathan Capeheart.
‘Tamron was ready to get out of the game after ‘Today.’ She’d been on TV since she was 18 years old,’ the source told Page Six. ‘She felt like she’d accomplished a lot and was fully prepared to move back to her hometown in Texas and then Harvey [Weinstein] called and when Harvey calls, you take the call. It felt like the right time.’
