Megyn Kelly will be hosting an hour of NBC News’ Today Show, but because of her inclusion, Tamron Hall is getting pushed out of the show.
There are two possible options for Kelly’s inclusion. She will either take over the third hour or she will take the 10:00 a.m. time slot currently hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. Should Kelly take the fourth hour slot, Gifford and Kotb will be bumped up to the third hour, so either choice means that Tamron Hall and Al Roker will no longer be hosting the third hour together.
That announcement has led to shock and, in my cases, outrage as many Today Show viewers took to social media to express their frustration and disbelief that this decision was being made.
There was no reason for Tamron Hall and Al Roker to be replaced. However, they are the only black people on the show, so it acceptable for white CEOs to replace them even if they make top ratings, and with whom? Megyn Kelly is a conservative FOX news dream girl. TODAY Show just lost a lot of viewers today.
