Since its debut in September 2019, the veteran journalist’s nationally syndicated daytime talker, The Tamron Hall Show, has gobbled up ratings and big-name gets. A month after its Season 2 premiere, Disney announced in October that Hall would be renewed, marking the first time a new daytime talk series secured a third-year run since The Steve Harvey Show did it six years ago.
Walt Disney Television has renewed the nationally syndicated daytime talk show Tamron Hall for a third season. Hall is expected to announce the pickup at her show this morning.
The awards program will be accessible online and available to air on local television and radio stations starting Aug. 22. The annual awards celebrate the vital role of local radio and television stations throughout the U.S.
Tamron Hall took her syndicated talk show into pandemic remote production from her kitchen with a brand-new showrunner, a toddler and a squawking parrot in tow. She says even without the studio audience with whom she loves to connect, the show’s intimacy hasn’t been lost in the transition.
Tamron Hall will return beginning March 30 with new segments originating from her home and focused on COVID-19, buttressed with encore segments from previous shows. The show, recently renewed for a second season, shut down two weeks ago when the coronavirus crisis began.
Geddie — who, alongside Barbara Walters, helped build the The View into the behemoth it is today — had been the executive producer of Hall’s show since it premiered in September. An insider said: “He hasn’t been there since the holiday break and they stopped speaking around the fall.” Added another, “He has not been involved in the day-to-day runnings since October.”
The View, Live With Kelly and Ryan and Tamron Hall have been added to the list of shows that will be taping without a studio audience due to growing concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. “Given the current developing situation in New York City, we have made the decision to suspend live audiences from attending our news broadcasts and talk shows,” a Walt Disney Television spokesperson said this morning.
It’s not yet December and already TV stations know with certainty that two of this year’s new shows will return, with two more rookies likely to get second-season renewals. Moreover, stations also already know two more big shows are coming down the pike next year, bringing the total to six before we’ve even hit 2020.
The differentiating factor between Disney’s Tamron Hall and everyone else hitting syndication this season is that Tamron airs live three days a week on the East Coast and live-to-tape everywhere else, just like Disney’s Live with Kelly and Ryan, which Tamron follows in many major markets.
Tamron Hall will enter an already crowded talk space when it debuts in syndication on Monday, including a new entry from Kelly Clarkson, whose talk show bows the same day. Hall, 48, is not concerned though, because what she thinks Tamron Hall will provide is a unique factor —herself.
Two years after leaving NBC’s Today, the former anchor is back. She chats about her new syndicated talk show — and why she’s had it with that Tamron versus Megyn narrative.
Randi Clarke Lennon has been tapped to direct the new Tamron Hall syndicated talk show from Disney that debuts Sept. 9. She joins from CBS This Morning, having directed the show since it launched in 2012. She first joined The Early Show as an associate director in 2008 and also has directed multiple specials for CBS […]
Tamron Hall, the keynote speaker Wednesday at the Promax Station Summit at The Mirage in Las Vegas, held sway in front of a full house of local TV marketing executives. Seated on stage with her executive producer, Bill Geddie, Hall won over the audience with her story of humble origins and hard work in local TV news.
Award-winning daytime talk producer Talia Parkinson-Jones has been named co-executive producer of Tamron Hall, it was announced by William Burton, senior vice president of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production, ABC Entertainment. Also joining the senior production team along with Parkinson-Jones is Andrew Scher, who has been named supervising producer. Set to broadcast from New York […]
Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International has cleared the show in more than 85% of the U.S.
Hall’s new syndicated talk show, which was being pitched as a daytime offering, will air instead from 8 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday on Weigel Broadcasting’s independent WCIU Chicago. It’s a huge coup for Hall and an exceedingly shrewd move by the Weigel bosses.
In addition to the previously announced ABC Owned Television Stations Group and Hearst Television stations, the show has been licensed to stations from broadcast groups for fall, including Cox, Sinclair, Scripps, Meredith, Tribune, Gray and Nexstar.
The presence of several new shows and their talent at NATPE next week should make for a livelier convention and reassure broadcasters about the health of syndication, one of the cornerstones of their business.
Hearst’s stations across 24 U.S. markets will be distributing Hall’s daytime talker, according to Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International, which is distributing the show, putting it in half of the U.S., including eight of the top 10 markets. The ABC Owned Stations cleared the show in September. As more station groups pick up the program, the question becomes where in the daytime TV schedule will it fit?
Former Today co-host Tamron Hall is officially heading to daytime TV. Disney ABC has cleared the new syndicated daytime talk show hosted by Hall on the ABC Owned Television Stations Group for fall 2019. The project had been in development at Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer & International for the past couple of months.
Dr. Steve Perry, Mel Robbins, Angie Martinez (above), Jaime Pressly, Finesse Mitchell, Tamron Hall, Kelly Clarkson and RuPaul are among those who are said to be working on first-run syndication projects.
Former Today host Tamron Hall is developing a syndicated daytime talk show after striking a deal with Disney ABC. Hall, who has been the host of Investigation Discovery’s Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall since 2013, has inked a development holding agreement with the Hollywood studio.
Hall, who was bumped from her Today gig to make room for Megyn Kelly’s new 9 o’clock show, is working with Weinstein TV on an untitled talker. It’ll be shot in front of a live studio audience and will “fill the current void in daytime for viewers looking for a blend of heart, humor and information,” a statement said. No word on a distributor.
The National Association of Black Journalists is slamming NBC for Tamron Hall’s abrupt departure on Wednesday, accusing the network of “whitewashing” to make way for Fox News star Megyn Kelly’s arrival.
Tamron Hall, a regular host on NBC’s Today and MSNBC, is leaving the network later this month. Her departure was announced today after days of contentious contract negotiations. Hall had been the co-host of the 9 a.m. hour of Today and a daytime anchor on MSNBC. Last week executives informed Hall and the Today staff that the 9 a.m. hour was being canceled to make room for a new program led by former Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
