Tamron Hall is in a development deal with Disney ABC to bring us a new daytime television show.
Although the show details aren’t set in stone, in an interview with The Huff Post, Hall says, she aims to make the show “unconventional, fun, intimate, and sometimes even raw.”
Hall also says she feels valued at her new home and that everything feel in place because she believed it would.
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,” she said. “I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it!”
Last February, Hall and Al- Roker who hosted the 9am hour of the Today show was let go in order to introduce a new program led by former Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Even though Hall’s “feelings were hurt” by the networks decision she did not let that slow her down. Later that year Hall signed a deal with The Weinstein Company to develop and host a syndicated and other non-scripted programming. Shortly after sexual harassment allegations came out about TWC co-founder Harvey Weinstein Hall changed her mind. While Hall has been an esteemed journalist for years (and one of my sheros) the lessons we can take from her deal with Disney is to always bet on ourselves and keep pushing no matter what!
