Tamron Hall is not ready to gloat about Megyn Kelly’s short-lived NBC News tenure, which resulted in Hall’s eventual departure from the network in 2017. While promoting her upcoming daytime talk show Monday, “Tamron Hall,” she said that even if Kelly had been successful, NBC News still made the wrong choice in bumping Hall off the “Today” show — she co-hosted the 9 a.m. hour with Al Roker — to make room for Kelly. “Megyn’s success or not, I already knew they made the wrong choice when I left the door. So I would never measure by her success or perceived lack thereof. I knew the day I left that it was the wrong decision, that’s why I left,” Hall said during the Television Critics Association press tour. “For me, I didn’t know what would come after leaving that situation. I’m blessed and fortunate that this is the end result. But whether that show made it or not, I knew I was making the right decision for me.” Also Read: Tamron Hall Lands 'The View' Co-Creator Bill Geddie as Executive Producer of Her New Daytime Talk Show Hall left NBC in early 2017, after losing her “Today” 9 a.m. hour...
