It’s contract time for MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall, who also fills in on “Today.” TVGuide reports Hall is negotiating for a co-host role on the third hour of “Today,” currently hosted by Willie Geist, Natalie Morales, and Al Roker.
As we’ve noted before, CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker is fond of Hall. Zucker’s had success to date prying prominent talent away from other networks, Chris Cuomo and Bill Weir to name two.
We’ve heard even if Hall stays and moves to “Today,” she would likely still host a show for MSNBC. She currently anchors “News Nation” at 2pm.
With 11am and noon hosts Thomas Roberts and Alex Wagner on the move, MSNBC has been having Richard Lui and Craig Melvin fill in on those hours with news coverage this week.
NBC News and MSNBC declined comment to TVNewser. We’ve also reached out to Hall’s agent, but have not heard back.
