Tamron Hall Could Become A 'Today' Host: TV Guide

Tamron Hall is negotiating for a more permanent position on "Today," TV Guide reported Monday night.

Hall, who also hosts the 2 PM hour on MSNBC, has been a frequent face on "Today," which is undergoing a thorough rethink in its quest to regain its ratings lead over rival "Good Morning America."

TV Guide's Stephen Battaglio wrote that Hall could become a co-host for the show's third hour, which is currently staffed by Willie Geist, Al Roker and Natalie Morales. If that happened, Hall would be a front-runner for any moves up the ladder in the show's future.

TVNewser reported that Hall would be expected to continue her MSNBC job even if she added "Today" to her schedule. That's similar to Geist's decision to retain his co-hosting slot on "Morning Joe" when he became a "Today" host. Moreover, MSNBC would probably be loath to lose Hall, since it has been rearranging huge swaths of its lineup recently.
