The “Today” show has come under fire after reports revealed the morning talk show is planning to replace Tamron Hall with former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
Kelly left Fox for a new home at NBC, so the network plans to evict Tamron to make room for their new tenant.
Via Page Six:
We’re told Kelly will take over either the 9 a.m. hour from Tamron Hall and Al Roker or will replace Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford.
“If she takes over Hoda and Kathie Lee’s 10 a.m. hour, they will move to the 9 a.m. hour,” an insider said.
We hear Hall will be leaving the network next month when her contract is up. Roker will continue his 7-to-9 a.m. duties.
Kelly will start in September.
“Everyone has been left in the dark and no one knows why there’s such a disruption when shows are doing so well across the board,” an insider told us. Another insider adds: “People are pissed. The third hour was beating every syndicated show across the board. They were in over their head and bit off more than they can chew when they hired Megyn.”
The “Today” show might as well brace themselves for their first L of 2017 because NO ONE is here for Megyn Kelly taking Tamron Hall’s hour.
Megyn Kelly is going to replace Tamron Hall? That's wild. https://t.co/5Fq8xbFicQ
