Tamron Hall wanted more women on the staff of her new talk show
Tamron Hall is proving to be her sister’s keeper.
“When I came to [an early] meeting to discuss my new show . . . there were only men in the room,” she told an audience Wednesday at the Rolling Stone’s Women Shaping the Future brunch. “And I had to say, ‘Sorry to tell you, but we are going to have a lot of women on staff. Sorry, but I don’t want to just talk to you men all day. We need some women in here.’ ”
Hall is all “Black Girl Magic,” making major moves and ensuring that women are seen and heard on her watch.
More than a year after Hall unceremoniously parted ways with NBC and the Today show to make room for Megyn Kelly, the respected journalist is starting fresh with a new talk show, which is set to premiere Sept. 9.
According to Deadline, Hall’s new syndicated daytime talk show is thanks to a partnership between Disney and Hearst Television and will reach up to 50 percent of U.S. television households, including eight of the top 10 markets.
“We are excited to once again be in business with our long-term partners and couldn’t be more pleased that Hearst has placed its confidence in Tamron Hall’s return to daytime television,” Jed Cohen, EVP and general sales manager, U.S. content sales and distribution, Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, previously said.
“Tamron will bring her abundant wit, style, intelligence and warmth to her show,” executive producer Bill Geddie previously said of Hall. “She has the unparalleled breadth of experience to talk and listen to all sides and bring folks together.”
And to make 2019 even sweeter for Hall, she recently announced that she’s got a bouncing bundle of joy on the way.
