Tamron Hall

After landing her dream job on the TODAY Show and establishing herself as a well-respected anchor, Tamron Hall was replaced and offered a diminished role with the network. Undeterred, she chose to bet on herself, walking away to write her next chapter on her own terms. Today, she hosts the acclaimed talk show “Tamron Hall,” now in its fifth season, captivating audiences with her fresh, relatable voice and insightful interviews with changemakers. As an Emmy Award-winning journalist, Tamron’s career includes hosting the third hour of TODAY, anchoring MSNBC Live, and hosting Court TV’s original true-crime series, “Someone They Knew With Tamron Hall.” She is also a successful author, known for her “Jordan Manning” mystery series, with her second book, Watch Where They Hide, recently released. In our conversation, Tamron shares lessons on knowing your value, having the courage to leave situations that no longer serve you, and the transformative power of betting on yourself.
