Tamron Hall's faith in herself pays off with new show, life

When Tamron Hall decided to leave NBC after the network gave her prime "Today" co-hosting slot to Megyn Kelly, the journalist threw herself a party _ a pity party

NEW YORK -- When Tamron Hall decided to leave NBC after the network gave her prime "Today" co-hosting slot to Megyn Kelly, the journalist threw herself a party — a pity party.

That included plenty of tears and a bit of feeling sorry for herself.

Hall says she didn't have a specific plan when she left in 2017. All she had was faith that something bigger had to be on the horizon, noting: "I've got to believe in something, so why not believe in myself?"

That belief has paid off with amazing dividends for Hall, who not only now has a husband and a 4-month-old son Moses, but her own show, "Tamron Hall," that will debut across the nation on Monday.
