Fate of Tamron Hall’s Talk Show Up in Air After Harvey Weinstein Scandal

It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for broadcast journalist Tamron Hall. In February, Hall abruptly left her co-anchor post at the Today Show and quit her own show on MSNBC. Her hasty exit came after news broke that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly was joining the Today team and taking over Hall and Al Roker’s 9 a.m. “Today’s Take” hour.

Bad move, NBC. New York Times media reporter John Koblin tweeted that viewership is down 24 percent from last year when Hall was hosting the time slot.

After she left the peacock network, however, the stunning Hall landed on her feet and signed a development deal with The Weinstein Company. But in light of the disturbing sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Hall s speaking out against the Hollywood producer and working with her agent on her next move.

The television personality met Weinstein last February and she reportedly called him after hearing the allegations.

“It’s a woman’s worst nightmare to be in a situation where you believe someone more powerful has control over your life,” Hall told the Huffington Post. “I immediately thought about the women who have suffered in silence and were paralyzed by fear; fear that I’ve seen with domestic violence survivors; fear that I’ve seen when I interviewed women who were raped on their college campuses.”

Violence and sexual assault against women hits close to home for Hall, whose sister was killed by an abusive boyfriend. She works with Safe Horizons and Day One to help give victims of domestic violence a safe space.

Viewers can still tune in to Hall on the Investigation Discover series Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall, which focuses on crimes against women. She told HuffPost she hopes survivors can find comfort in those who’ve spoken out against Weinstein.

“I hope today they are comforted by Ashley, Rose, Lauren, Asia, and Mira [some of Weinstein’s accusers], women who from the outside have everything but inside behind the closed doors suffered in silence,” she said
