America’s news sweetheart Tamron Hall is back with a self-titled daytime talk show The Tamron Hall Show. Following Hall’s controversial yet celebrated 2017 exit from the Today Show after being curbed in favor of white supremacist-y Megyn Kelly, Hall returns to television as a talk show host on her terms.

In addition to Hall’s professional life, a lot has also changed in her personal life since the abrupt Today and MSNBC exit. The award-winning journalist is now married and a mother of a son, which she discussed at the “Journey to My Wildest Dreams” Toyota sponsored luncheon at the 2019 NABJ national convention held in Miami.

Hall discussed how motherhood has changed her life, the confidence required to be in the news business and the challenges faced by blacks in general and black women specifically on the often-complicated journey to success.

Hall reiterated the importance of having a seat at the table and being ready when the opportunity presents itself. “There was a window, a sliver of opportunity and I took it,” says Hall. “I knew I had to shoot my shot,” says the Texas native. Indeed, Hall shot her shot, landing on her feet with a daytime talk show in a market that is crowded but ripe for a voice like Hall’s.

Hall’s return to daytime pits her against another one of America’s sweethearts, Grammy award-winning singer Kelly Clarkson who is also launching a self-titled talk show on the same day on NBC no less.

Clarkson is the season one winner of American Idol and has served as a judge on the wildly popular NBC reality show The Voice.

Hall will also be wading into territory currently occupied by Wendy Williams, Rachel Ray, and the ladies of The View and The Talk among others. Hall created this talk show to bring people together and to give them an opportunity to share their “authentic journey.”

One of the ways Hall is shaping her show is by insisting the makeup of the crew reflect her audience. Despite having veteran executive producer Bill Geddie at the helm, Hall insisted that more women be hired because she wants to empower people like her – a self-described country girl from Luling, Texas who has made it to the upper echelons of television and news.

Although creating and hosting a daytime talk show is new to Hall, working in front of and behind the camera is not. Hall hosted the Discovery ID series Deadline Crime with Tamron Hall, a weekly series which takes at deep dive into crimes, including unsolved crimes.

Motivated by the unsolved murder of her sister Renate, Hall lead an investigative team of journalists working together to find out what happened and why, to victims throughout the country for three seasons.

Hall’s talk show will differ greatly but will offer in-depth discussions about important topics in addition to traditional daytime lifestyle segments. Hall believes television has the power to help people share their “authentic journey” and wants people to talk about their lives and inspire others in the process.

The Tamron Hall Show debuts 9/9/19. Check local listings for channel and time information.

    Most pleasant of greetings to you Miss Hall
    We have been watching your show since its debut
    What drew our attention yo you is the day we saw you put the guy roker in his place
    We saw a braveheart.
    Anyhow here’s a story. we hope you are brave enough to pick up….
    Thos one is for our sister Miss Lauryn Hill…

    Some food for thought !!!
    To all humanity… THE ROOT CAUSE OF MANKIND’S PROBLEMS ARE
    The GREATEST LIE EVER TOLD TO MANKIND!!!

    WHO TOLD THIS GREAT LIE?
    IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS LIE MANKIND HAS FOUND HIMSELF IN THIS STATE OF CONFLICT CONFUSION AND CALAMITY

    THE DEMONIC BLOND HAIRED BLUE EYED JESUS TEACHINGS forcefully embedded into a peoples thru fear and intimidation and up to this day being subliminally taught into the curriculum of many modern institutions
    The great state of chaos calamity and destructiveness which we as human has found ourselves in can easily be rectified if we wholeheartedly put hands and hearts together for a better tomorrow!!!
    First and foremost we MUST seek this “(UNHOLY UNGODLY ROOT CAUSE)” of mankind’s present “(state of) demise and stagnation)” wherever it may exist
    It is ONLY after we have completely DISMANTLED and ERADICATED this “( UNHOLY UNGODLY ROOT CAUSE)” of mankind’s “(state of demise and stagnation)”  in totality that we as humanity can truly move forward together as one people..

    Or is mankind being kept away from the “(REAL TRUTH)” by those people who  “profess” to be MEN OF GOD but who really are DEVILS IN PRIESTLY ROBES..

    Because of certain demonic elements within our societies positioning themselves as institutions of higher/spiritual learning whilst their bottom line agenda is the brainwashing of people “(black/white)” yet the Blackrace is systematically kept at the bottom of the economic table …hmmm?

    Why has the true history of the (Black Race)” been written taught/told to black people by foreigners?

    Because of THOSE black who keep silent when they SHOULD SPEAK
    Also because of the Blackman who has and still look up to their conqueror for spiritual guidance

    Because majority of people are taught to hoard wealth and idolize/look up to token entertainers and entertainment instead of being taught to uplift each other thru very simple acts of love tolerance generosity and kindness…
