ABC’s daytime programming will be getting a new talk show host in veteran journalist Tamron Hall.
Hall, who hails from Luling, Texas, made a mark in her journalism career as a general assignment and consumer reporter when she spent 10 years in Chicago at WFLD. She eventually was promoted to anchor and was given a three-hour news program called Fox News in the Morning. Hall made a name for herself at MSNBC, as she was one of the few journalists given the opportunity to interview #BarackObama in Illinois when he was a senator. Since then, her talents earned her an Emmy for the NBC News Special, The Inauguration of Barack Obama.
“I’m so thrilled to partner with Disney/ABC to create a daytime television show that’s unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw,” Hall said in a statement. “My new partners appreciate and respect the relationship I’ve built with my audience and know that if we create television worth watching, they’ll join us for the ride. I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it.”
Hall is currently the host of Investigation Discovery’s Deadline Crime with Tamron Hall and had plans to start her journey in daytime talk last year under the #Harvey Weinsein Television Company. However, due Weinstein’s sexual misconduct allegations the show was pushed to the side.
The full details of Hall’s show have yet to be released.
