Tamron Hall will be the new co-host of TODAY's Take.

The TODAY family is growing with a familiar, friendly face: Tamron Hall has been named a co-host of TODAY's Take, the 9 a.m. hour of TODAY, joining fellow hosts Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist. The announcement was made Monday morning on TODAY.  

Hall, 43, has been filling in regularly on the show, reading the news, covering special events like the Golden Globes, and spotlighting buzzy social media trends in in TODAY’s digital studio, the Orange Room.

“We’re really excited to officially welcome Tamron into the TODAY family,” said Don Nash, TODAY's Executive Producer. “She brings wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility to an all-around fantastic team, and I think Tamron, Al, Natalie and Willie will have a lot of fun together hosting the third hour.”

A regular fill-in host on TODAY, Hall has most recently interviewed Hugh Jackman, Mariah Carey, and Instagram’s CEO Kevin Systrom. She has frolicked with puppies in the Orange Room, sprinted across the TODAY plaza in heels, and taken on senior basketball phenoms, the Tigerettes. (In one instance during that fun-filled showdown, Tamron revealed her strength with a shot that sailed right over the backboard!)   

The veteran broadcast journalist also has shared personal stories on the show. As part of TODAY's #InspiredBy series, Tamron talked about the man who inspires her and whom she “fondly calls my dad,” her stepfather, Clarence Newton Sr. And for TODAY’s Shine a Light series, Hall worked to raise awareness about domestic abuse in memory of her sister, Renate, a victim of domestic violence.
