*Al Roker has commented on the departure of Tamron Hall from the NBC and MSNBC because the suits who run things decided to replace Hall with newly acquired Megyn Kelly who comes from Fox News.
On Thursday, Roker addressed Hall’s leaving the show, which is also confirmation of our exclusive report we published on Monday where we reported on the fact that Hall was being forced out. Here’s what he had to say:
“As some of you may have heard by now, our good friend Tamron Hall has decided to leave NBC News,” the veteran weatherman, 62, said. “Personally, Tamron has been not just a cohost on Today for the past three years, but a good friend — and to not just me, but to all of us here. We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success, and we cannot wait to see what her next chapter is.”
