The syndicated daytime program will air on Disney/Hearst stations in fall 2019, according to a tweet Hall sent out on Monday, Dec. 3.
“Exciting #MondayMorning news! Thrilled to announce that @Hearst Television Stations will be airing my new @Disney /ABC syndicated talk show next fall,” she said. “Looking forward to sharing stories about extraordinary people and building our community, where everyone is invited every day.”
In an accompanying video teasing the kind of content the show will focus on, Hall explains that being the “girl from the underdog background” is not something that “makes me extraordinary.” She goes on to explain that everyone can relate to each other simply by taking the first step to do so.
“We are the people next door, all we have to do is open the door,” she says.
A Monday news release stated that Hall’s still-unnamed syndicated show will debut in 24 markets next year including WESH Orlando, WTAE Pittsburgh, WLWT Cincinnati and WBAL Baltimore to name a few.
“We are excited to once again be in business with our long-term partners and couldn’t be more pleased that Hearst has placed its confidence in Tamron Hall’s return to daytime television,” read a statement from Jed Cohen, executive vice president and general sales manager, U.S. content sales and distribution, Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International. “These Hearst stations are among the finest in broadcast television and their commitment clearly places Tamron in the best environment for success in 2019.”
Previous reports noted Hall’s program will focus on human interest stories, current events and sitdowns with tastemakers and stars. The show, which has been reported to be filmed in front of a live studio audience, is set to be executive produced by Hall, too.
Once the show premieres, it will be the first time the reporter returns to TV screens full-time following her departure from NBC. Hall had been a fixture of the network’s morning news program for three years before “Today” ushered in Megyn Kelly and Hall reportedly declined to renew her contract or was pushed out. What exactly led to her exit remains unclear.
What is crystal clear, however, is the support Hall has garnered from fans thanks to her new career move.
“Absolutely love YOU!!! Can’t wait to see…”
“Cannot wait to see this new beginning for you!”
