“Tamron Hall has officially been named a co-host of the 9 a.m. hour of the ‘Today’ Show,” Katherine Fung reported Monday for the Huffington Post.
“Hall, who is a frequent fill-in host on the show, joined the rest of the co-hosts on the ‘Today’ sofa when the news was announced on air Monday. ‘I’m so happy and thank you guys for being so kind to me and always welcoming,’ she said.
” ‘We’re really excited to officially welcome Tamron into the TODAY family,’ the show’s executive producer Don Nash said in a statement from NBC News. ‘She brings wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility to an all-around fantastic team, and I think Tamron, Al, Natalie and Willie will have a lot of fun together hosting the third hour.’
“On Monday, the show took a look at her journalism career, which has traversed Texas to Chicago to New York. . . . “
Hall is also anchor of MSNBC’s “NewsNation,” which launched in 2010. She joined MSNBC in 2007 and has since hosted several special reports for MSNBC and NBC News, the network said.

“Today, I have cried,” Gloria J. Early, a Detroit retiree, wrote Monday on her Facebook page. “I have yelled at my computer, I have jumped up and down and I have laughed some. I was attending the service for my brother, Rev. Angelo.” That would be Angelo B. Henderson, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who wore many hats: newspaper reporter, radio host, minister and community activist.
