MSNBC and NBC News
Tamron started working with MSNBC as a fill-in anchor and general reporter, but her popularity increased significantly when she was assigned as a substitute anchor for Keith Olbermann on the show “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”. This led her to become the co-host of “The Big Picture” alongside David Shushter, from 2009 to 2010. She also was a substitute anchor for Natalie Morales and did weekend anchoring work, before she was given her own show “News Nation with Tamron Hall”, which started airing the same year. In the show, she conducted high profile interviews, and covered international news, as well as doing live broadcasts of big events, including coverage of the final space shuttle launch in 2011.
In 2014, she became a co-anchor for “Today’s Take” during its third hour, in which she was joined by Natalie Morales, Willie Geist and Al Roker, actually the first African-American woman to co-anchor on the show. It was then announced that she would be hosting another show on Investigation Discovery – “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” – which follows two crime occurrences in each episode with a team trying to uncover more details on each case. The show is dedicated to her late sister, who was killed in 2004 in a case that remains unsolved.
In 2017, it was reported that Hall was leaving NBC News and MSNBC as her contract was up. She continues to work with Investigation Discovery, and it was later revealed that she had planned on producing a daytime talk show with Harvey Weinstein, however, after the allegations against Weinstein, she instead worked on a new show with Hulu called “Tamron Hall’s Pass”. During the middle of 2018, she announced that she had reached an agreement with ABC to produce a daytime talk show, scheduled to air the following year.

Tamron’s sister was murdered in 2004 following bouts of domestic violence. The family informed the police of the identity of the attacker, but he has not been caught. She mentioned that she blames herself for the death of her sister, as she did not take notice of the signs of domestic violence. She is now a part of the “Shine a Light” campaign which fights against domestic abuse, and also helps with homelessness and hunger. Her goal is to help spread messages of awareness in schools to help combat physical and emotional relationships. which can start as early as the teenage years. She has conducted fundraisers for Day One New York, which also fights dating abuse.

He was also a producer of the series “The West Wing”, which earned several awards during its run from 1999 to 2006.
She has never been married or had children, quite open about it during an episode of “Today’s Take”, and mentioned that one of her biggest regrets was that she didn’t have a child when she was younger; now it is almost impossible for her to bear a child. She also addressed issues that society has with single parents. She continues to stay active with work and her charity efforts, but in the meantime shows no signs of marrying.
