Here is an in-depth look at the biography, romantic affairs, family matters, and fortune of this talented lady.
Tamron Hall Bio, Age
The presenter was born on September 16, 1970, in Luling, Texas, where she was raised by her mother, Mary Newton, and her stepfather, Clarence Newton Sr., who is a sincere lover of Tamron, and she credits him with her career in journalism as he was her main motivator. She graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism. After graduating, she began her career as a field reporter at KBTX in Byan, Texas, and then moved to KTVT, a CBS television station.
In 1997, she joined WFLD-TV, a Fox television station based in Chicago, Illinois, where she covered local political issues. She also hosted “Fox News in the Morning,” a three-hour show, and covered numerous “Breaking News” stories, including the Amtrak train crash in 1999. In 1999, she launched her own reporting segment called “The Bottom Line,” which focuses on consumer reporting, and it was known that she held several other positions in the station before leaving the station in 2007.
Her MSNBC Career
The high-profile reporter, who has become a TV sensation, got a job with the popular news channel MSNBC in 2007, where she is known to have gained further recognition in her capacity as a general reporter and presenter. In 2008 she hosted a one-on-one interview with Barack Obama before he announced his intention to run for president. She also co-hosted with host David Shuster on “The Big Picture”, a two-hour show that ran from June 2009 to January 2010.
In 2010, Tamron hosted “News Nation with Tamron Hall,” which aired throughout the week and covered global news and entertainment news in addition to interviews with high-profile personalities. The avid reporter even reported live from Ground Zero in New York City after the death of terrorist Osama Bin Laden became known. She was also NBC’s news correspondent for the program “The Inauguration of Barack Obama”, which was broadcast in October 2010. Tamron is known for reporting news such as the last space shuttle launch in 2011, Hurricane Isaac in 2012 and until September 2013 she was the host of the news series “Deadline”: Crimes with Tamron Hall’ on the investigation
As her fame and expertise grew, Tamron was assigned to host the NBC’s “Today” program in 2014, making her the first African American woman to co-host the program.
Tamron Hall’s Departure From MSNBC
In February 2017 the news spread about the resignation of the moderator of MSNBC and the NBC news. It was shocking to learn that Tamron would leave the NBC family after having worked with them for about a decade. According to sources, she had a legitimate reason to leave when she found out that the length of her show had been cut by an hour to make room for a new show, and that she was about to lose her position as co-host for the Today show. These changes were not well received by the presenter, and despite the salary increase and attractive incentives she was offered, she decided to resign. In July 2017, Tamron teamed up with Harvey Weinstein, owner of The Weinstein Company and co-owner of the film production company Miramax. In 2018, she is also scheduled to make a comeback show in which she will act as host, but she has not yet announced the title of the show.
Does Tamron Hall Have A Boyfriend Or Husband?
The beautiful hostess is known for protecting her private life and hiding it from the prying eyes of the public. However, sources assume that she is not yet married and is quite skeptical about this topic, but she has a boyfriend named Lawrence O’Donnell who was her MSNBC newscaster and is the host of “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell”.
The Journalist’s View Of Children
Tamron, who is now in her 40s, revealed in a television interview that although you don’t only become caring when you have a child, as a parent you certainly have the opportunity to increase the need for care. She went on to say that getting older takes its toll on women, especially career women, and that the work system is becoming more boring every day, which at a certain point even makes it impossible to integrate parenthood. When asked what she would have done differently if she could go back to her 20s, the presenter made it clear that she had a child then. For her, the delay in parenthood only makes it more difficult to be a parent, but unfortunately not every woman would buy her idea, as women tend to make careers and forget the consequences of their decisions.
What Happened To Tamron Hall’s Sister?
Tamron had a sister named Renate who came to a tragic end in 2004 when she was murdered, and before that, she was a victim of domestic violence in the hands of abusive partners. The perpetrator has still not been found, and it was a great burden on the Hall family. The presenter even believed that her father died out of lovesickness over the loss of his daughter.
This incident has also drastically changed Tamron’s life and even influenced her career, as she keeps talking to women about abusive relationships and the right steps to take to cope with them.
The TV Star’s Salary, Net Worth
This high-profile media personality lives far above the average, with sources claiming that she has net assets of around $5.5 million and an estimated annual salary of $720,000.
