Journalist and TV host Tamron Hall‘s Emmy-Award winning talk show was just greenlighted for a third season on ABC.
She excitedly announced the news on the “Tamron Hall” show in front of her studio audience during Tuesday’s show.
“I’ve just learned because of the TamFam, because of you, you in the virtual audience, you wherever you are, the ‘Tamron Hall’ show has been picked up for a third season. And that means we will be on through the year 2022. In these challenging times that we’re all facing, to be on for a whole other season, to be with the TamFam, to grow the TamFam through the year ’22 and beyond, I’m just so grateful. So I just wanted to thank you for everything.”
She continued: “And congratulations to the entire ‘Tamron Hall’ show team. And thank you to our partners at ABC/Disney for telling us this news. This doesn’t happen, I love to take you behind the scenes. To get a show renewed this early into a season, we’ve only had 30 days of shows, is incredible. So thank you ABC/Disney, but thank you to the TamFam for keeping us going.”
Network higher-ups said Hall more than deserved the accolades she’s been receiving.
“Tamron and our team aggressively came out of the starting block for a fantastic first month of our new season,” William Burton, SVP, Syndication, Daytime & Sports, ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. “From exclusive newsmaking interviews to compelling conversations, we look forward to the ‘Tamron Hall’ show remaining a daytime destination for viewers for years to come.”
In September, Hall snagged a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host for her inaugural season. Her show averages 1.2 million viewers with viewership up 9 percent this season. Last month, Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN TV channel renewed its license for the show’s syndication.
This season, “Tamron Hall” kicked off with an interview featuring former Tallahassee mayor and Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and his wife, R. Jai, where Gillum revealed he identified as bisexual. Gillum also talked about the Miami hotel incident where he was found inebriated with another man who reportedly overdosed on drugs. Prior to the controversy, Gillum admitted that he struggled with addiction and depression but sought rehab for treatment.
Other guests on the “Tamron Hall” show have included former “Vanderpump Rules” cast member Stassi Schroeder, who addressed her racially insensitive behavior, and Marvel star Chris Evans, who reflected on his nudes leaking on social media. In addition, Hall has moderated conversations on the tensions between white and Black women in America as well as discussing what it means to be non-binary.
