Tamron Hall is coming back to TV.
The former “Today Show” host is developing a daytime talk show with Harvey Weinstein, Weinstein Television announced Wednesday.
“I’ve been working towards developing a talk show for a long time, but needed to make sure I did it the right way and with the right person to take the lead. Tamron is far and away that person,” co-chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement.
“She’s an exceptionally talented journalist whose interviews masterfully walk the line between entertainment and hard hitting. We couldn’t be more thrilled to begin this new venture with her.”
Tamron Hall’s departure sparks accusation of NBC ‘whitewashing’
Hall left MSNBC and “Today” in February after her show was axed to make room for Megyn Kelly.
She turned down a multimillion dollar, multiyear deal to stay on “Today” and continue hosting her show on cable, insiders told the Daily News at the time.
“We valued and enjoyed her work at ‘Today’ and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay. We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best,” NBC News officials said in an internal memo obtained by The News.
Kelly’s morning program will debut Sept. 25 in front of a live studio audience and compete directly with “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” on ABC.
Hall confirmed the news on Instagram.
“When the right call comes,” she wrote.
