Tamron Hall was offered a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to stay at the ‘Today’ show, but turned it down; since NBC axed her segment to make way for racist ex-Fox news anchorwoman, Megyn Kelly.
NBC thought the “multiple million” dollar contract would soften the blow and ease the insult blown to Hall but she said “fuck you” to NBC and kept it moving instead.
Hall’s relationship with NBC soured when the network canceled her top-rated morning show “Today’s Take,” which she co-hosted with Al Roker, to create a slot for Kelly. Staffers at NBC were already buzzing about Andy Lack’s decision to replace “Today’s” first black female anchor with Kelly.
Kelly will either take over Hall’s 9 a.m. slot or appear at 10 a.m. when she starts in September. I’m so glad I stopped watching today when they jerked Ann Curry.
