Tamron Hall dedicates first day since leaving NBC to charity
Tamron Hall is cleaning out her closet — literally.
On Wednesday, NBC issued a statement to announce that Hall decided to leave NBC News and MSNBC after 10 years with both networks. The news came after NBC reportedly canceled the third hour of TODAY, which was hosted by Hall and Al Roker. Former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is expected to take over the time slot in a new morning show, beginning next fall.
But Hall isn't letting the change of pace dampen her enthusiasm. In a video posted on Twitter on Thursday, the news anchor shared with fans the inspiring way she spent her first day since leaving NBC.
Surrounded by bags of clothes and hat boxes in a walk-in closet, Hall begins, "Okay, what have I been doing all day?"
She goes on to thank her supporters for all their sweet social media messages, before revealing what she's been up to with her new-found free time. "These are good times for everybody and good times for one of my favorite organizations, Housing Works," she says as she shows off fancy party dresses, work clothes, and Jimmy Choo and Christian Louboutin heels she's packed into bags to give away to the non-profit foundation. "I have packed up a mother load headed to Housing Works to donate all these things. Hopefully you will support them — they're an amazing organization. And look: You get a whole lot of my stuff!"
Earlier Thursday, Roker addressed Hall's departure on TODAY, saying in part, "We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success and cannot wait to see what her next chapter is."
