Tamron Hall: What I’ve Been Doing Since Sudden ‘Today’ Show Exit

Out with the old, in with the new! Tamron Hall revealed that she’s been staying busy since her sudden Today show departure and the ensuing drama.

“OK, what have I been doing all day today? First of all, thank you guys so much for all your sweet social media messages. It’s meant so much to me.

I’ve got work clothes. I’ve got party clothes. I have packed up a mother lode, heading to Housing Works to donate all these things. Hopefully, you will support them. It’s an amazing organization.”

We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”

Her shocking exit came just a few days after it was reported that the megapopular former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly would be taking over an hour of the Today show. Sources told Us Weekly that Hall was told “minutes before going on air Friday that she and Al [Roker] were being taken off the show for Megyn Kelly.”
