Days after it was announced that Megyn Kelly would be bumping the 9:00am spot currently occupied by Al Roker and Tamron Hall, NBC announced this morning that Hall is leaving the network. Many say that Hall was caught off guard by the news that her show would be cancelled to make room for Kelly’s new morning show.

“Tamron is an exceptional journalist, we valued and enjoyed her work at ‘Today’ and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay,” NBC said in its statement. “We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”
