Tamron Hall will no longer be on NBC amid reports of the network ditching the third hour of the "Today Show," which the anchor co-hosted.
"We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success, and can not wait to see what her next chapter is", Roker said, seated with NBC News correspondent Sheinelle Jones and actor Dean Cain.
Hall, whose contract expired this month, left less than a week after it emerged that NBC is planning to rework the 9 a.m. hour of the Today show to accommodate new hire Megyn Kelly, giving her one of the hours in the NBC morning show's four-hour programming block. The website also said a source at CNN said she has talked with network boss Jeff Zucker, but a deal is unlikely because of her salary demands.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Tamron Hall would be leaving NBC News and MSNBC.
"Today" has been plagued by less-than-seamless transitions in the past.
"(W) e valued and enjoyed her work at Today and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay.
NBC News confirmed Al Roker will continue hosting "Today's Take" until the fall without Tamron.
"The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I'm grateful", she said in a statement. "To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you".
The statement concludes: "While NABJ wishes Hall well on her next move, NABJ requests a meeting with NBC leadership on the top-rated show's dismantling". We will support Hall's decision and she will have more than a multimillion deal - she will have trust of people who will follow her whenever she chooses.
