Today show audiences are disappointed that Tamron Hall will no longer host the third hour of the morning program.
On Friday, PEOPLE learned that Megyn Kelly, who left Fox News this month for a new role at NBC News, will either take over Today‘s third hour, currently hosted by Hall and Al Roker, or will take over Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb‘s 10:00 a.m. slot.
According to a source, if Kelly, 46, takes over the fourth hour, Gifford, 63, and Kotb, 52, will be bumped up to the 9:00 a.m. slot. Hall, 46, and Roker, 62, will no longer be co-hosting an hour together.

After learning about the NBC shakeup, viewers took to social media to express their disappointment about the upcoming change.
Some viewers expressed their shock. “I live for @TamronHall every single weekday morning. Are they insane over at the @TODAYshow?” one account holder tweeted.
Megyn Kelly is going to replace Tamron Hall? That's wild. https://t.co/5Fq8xbFicQ— deray mckesson (@deray) January 27, 2017
Others threatened to not watch the program moving forward. “I will not watch @TodayShow if @MegynKelly replaces @AlRoker & @TamronHall. I love Al & Tamron on the Today Show at 9am. They are the BEST,” another Twitter user posted.
But despite reports that Hall would be leaving the network, the source says as of right now, she’s not going anywhere. Hall also anchors MSNBC Live, a daily news program airing at 11:00 a.m. on MSNBC.
According to the source, Kelly’s Today show hour will likely begin this fall.
“The format is still in progress, but she will most likely be hosting the hour on her own,” says the insider.
