Less than a week after Megyn Kelly's arrival is announced, the beloved anchor turns down contract renewal.
After ten years with TODAY and MSNBC, Tamron Hall has decided to not renew her contract and move on from the network.
This news comes less than a week after it was announced that controversial FOX anchor, Megyn Kelly was coming to TODAY and may commandeer Hall and Al Roker’s TODAY’s Take at 9am show.
It’s been reported that the Texas-native who’s covered everything from the 2016 Olympics to two major Inaugurations was offered a multi-million dollar deal to stay, but decided against it.

“The last ten years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful,” Hall said in a statement. “I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”
There’s no word on what’s next for the talent, but we kind of hope she goes the Soledad O’Brien route and starts her own news production company.
“Tamron Hall will be leaving NBC News and MSNBC when her contract expires this month,” NBC notes in a statement. “Yesterday was her last day as an anchor on both networks. Tamron is an exceptional journalist, we valued and enjoyed her work at TODAY and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay. We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”
Al Roker will continue to co-host TODAY’s Take at 9am weekdays until a new morning lineup begins in the Fall of 2017.
