Just over two years after she was dumped by NBC without mercy, Tamron Hall opens her departure from the show and breaks her silence about the woman who replaced her in the network.
& # 39; I have no bad will towards Megyn [Kelly], & # 39; Hall told People.
She made this statement before being inevitably asked about the woman who was hosting for the third hour of today in a movement that was only to collect the assessments Hall had built up with Al Roker.
& # 39; They have made her and offered that she may not refuse. And they made an offer that I could refuse. & # 39;

Hosts: & # 39; They have made her and offered that she may not refuse. And they made an offer that I could refuse, & Tamron Hall said about Megyn Kelly and negotiations with NBC
Hall, who will launch a syndicated day show in September, said she was shocked by the offers that came to her after she left today.
"I felt that some of the offers that came in were offensive after 25 years of experience in the company," Hall said.
She also remembered that she thought of herself at one point: & Hold on. I've been doing this for a long time and you come to me with these strange little things. & # 39;
Hall certainly had no lack of qualifications and proved her ability to host any kind of broadcast during her time at NBC.
& # 39; The last week I was on Today I filled in for Savannah Guthrie, who went on maternity leave. I supplemented for Lester Holt [on NBC Nightly News] while I was busy with my MSNBC show plus recording Deadline Crime, & Hall said.
& # 39; So I put all the work in and I hear: & # 39; It doesn't matter that you came in every time we called, we want something different. & # 39;
Hall then added, "I wasn't that" anything else. "& # 39;
Eventually, she will have her Thursday Thursday return to the morning TV with a performance at Good Morning America.
The new mother has enthusiastically shared the news on social media and is expected to talk about her baby, her new show and possibly share new details about her departure from NBC.
Hall and Al Roker were comfortable in first place and delivered solid scores for today when the decision was made to turn them off and Megyn Kelly as host of the third hour.
That step came just when Hall's contract came out and she finally decided not to step down from NBC News and walked away instead.
It was a shocking departure for the woman who had long been one of the hardest working personalities on the network.
Roker anchored the third hour with Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dryer in the wake of Hall's departure, which also turned out to be a winning combination.
However, unlike Hall, the meteorologist already had a steady performance on Today when Roker learned the news about Kelly's arrival and appeared on the first two hours of the program.
The third hour had surpassed its time slot for seven consecutive weeks when the news was handed to Hall and Roker that Kelly would take over for them and earn much more money.
Shortly after Kelly signed a $ 69 million three-year contract, DailyMail.com revealed nearly 20 times what her predecessor Hall had paid and Hall and Roker's double salary.
This major investment resulted in a show with record low numbers for the network and a host that eventually got the boat after its defense of black face.
Since Hall left the Today show in 2017, she was in conversation with Disney-ABC to produce her own syndicated daytime talk show, which she will organize.
It was announced in March by Disney that the show will officially debut in September this year after months of development.
The addition of her son and recent wedding will keep the new mother busy while she prepares to film the first season of her new show.
