“Today” show co-host Tamron Hall has left NBC News.
Hall, 46, is leaving both NBC and MSNBC, where she hosted her own show, after learning she would lose her job hosting the third hour of “Today.”
Hall was offered a multimillion dollar, multiyear deal to stay on “Today” and continue hosting her show on cable — but turned the deal down, insiders said.
Hall’s departure comes as a direct result of the addition of former Fox News Channel star, Megyn Kelly, who will launch her own hour of “Today” next fall.
“Tamron Hall will be leaving NBC News and MSNBC when her contract expires this month,” NBC News officials said.
