Tamron Hall Bio: Is she the next Today Show anchor? [VIDEO + REPORT]

Tamron Hall, 43, the familiar face who regularly fills in on the Today show, is reportedly in serious talks with NBC for a more permanent spot on the morning show, according to Parade.com.

According to reports, Tamron Hall is having discussions with the network about becoming a co-host of the show's third hour Today's Take. If the talks push through, we will see more of her with other Today show hosts Natalie Morales, Al Roker, and Willie Geist. Today's Take's format is more of a talk show than Today's newsier segment.

Currently, Tamron Hall spends most of her time in the "Orange Room," which is Today's new segment devoted to trends in social media and covers events like the Golden Globes, the report said.

Tamron Hall also anchors NewsNation, a weekday show MSNBC launched in 2010 that features high profile interviews and in-depth coverage of U.S., world, and entertainment news. With Tamron Hall on board, NewsNations has covered countless and important news stories, which include a live broadcast of Osama Bin Laden's death from Ground Zero.

Before to joining MSNBC in July 2007, Tamron Hall spent 10 years in Chicago at WFLD. She held various positions including general assignment reporter, consumer reporter and host of the three-hour "Fox News in the Morning" program.

She has anchored the weekday mornings as well as its noon anchor. While at WFLD, she covered several breaking news stories. Some of those breaking stories included Amtrak's devastating accidents in Illinois and her one-on-one interview with then Sen. Barack Obama shortly before he announced he would run for president.

Tamron Hall received an Emmy nomination for "The Bottom Line," a consumer report segment that she launched in 1999. Before WFLD, Tamron worked as a general assignment reporter at KTVT in Dallas for four years. She began her broadcasting career at KBTX in Bryan, Texas, as a general assignment reporter.
