Tamron Hall is the ultimate utility player, a brand new author and the master of the pivot.
It's not easy to transition between serious breaking news and lifestyle segments on a TV show. But Tamron found a new niche in daytime TV after a nearly 30-year career in news.
Tamron got her start working in local news in Dallas and Chicago.
Then she spent 20 years at NBC News hosting the third hour of the "Today" show and anchoring "MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall."
She has also hosted "Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall" on Investigation Discovery since September 2013.
Tamron left NBC News to launch the "Tamron Hall Show" in 2019.
Then came the pandemic, working from home and a near-daily pivot to create daytime television relevant for an ever-changing audience.
Season 3 of the "Tamron Hall Show" is underway and this season's guests are a reflection of the challenges the host and her viewers are facing in the fall of 2021.
Also, Tamron wrote her first fiction book during lockdown. "As the Wicked Watch: The First Jordan Manning Novel" is inspired by real-life crimes she covered early in her career that never left her mind.
