Award-winning journalist, Tamron Hall, is making her way back to daytime television- this time with her very own show.
Hall has signed a deal with Disney-ABC to develop a syndicated daytime talk show, reports Deadline. In a statement, she explained that the show will be “unconventional, fun, intimate and sometimes even raw.”
“My new partners appreciate and respect the relationship I’ve built with my audience and know that if we create television worth watching, they’ll join us for the ride. I’m so grateful and excited for this next chapter. The landing makes the leap of faith so worth it.”
