Tamron Hall: 'I Married White ... But I Love Black Men'

Tamron Hall gets real about her ‘Today Show’ firing during opening of new talk show
Tamron Hall: 'I Married White ... But I Love Black Men'

Talk show host Tamron Hall is married to a White man, but she's adamant that she still loves Black men.

Tamron spoke to reporters, where she discussed getting married to a White man, tv executive Steve Greener.

Tamron told reporters, “I never imagined my husband would be white. I grew up in Texas in a predominately Black neighborhood. I’ve dated almost exclusively men of color, Black men. He just so happened to be the person I fell in love with.”

Tamron continued, ”In no way did marrying my husband mean that Black men had failed me. I was raised by an unapologetic Black man who served in this country’s army for 30 years. That’s who I am. That’s the fiber of who I am.”



And according to Tamron, her Caucasian husbands understand the struggles of Black people. She explained, "My husband used to be the executive producer of the ‘Bernie Mac Show’ and won a Peabody Award for it. One of the most powerful images of a strong black father figure in TV.”

In July 2007, Hall joined the national news network MSNBC and NBC News.[2] She also landed a one-on-one interview with Barack Obama before he announced his run for presidency in 2008.

At MSNBC, Hall served as a general reporter and fill-in anchor, first achieving prominence as a substitute anchor for Keith Olbermann on Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Hall then joined David Shuster as co-host of a two-hour program, The Big Picture, which premiered June 1, 2009, and concluded January 29, 2010. Hall anchored as a substitute for Natalie Morales, and also anchored on the weekends.

On February 1, 2017, with Hall's contract expiring within the month, NBC News and Hall released a joint statement confirming Hall's decision to depart from both NBC and MSNBC.

Tamron Hall: 'NBC Made The Wrong Choice Ditching Me For Megyn Kelly!

Tamron Hall opens up about ‘Today’ show firing Tamron Hall’s eponymous talk show debuted nationwide Monday, Sept. 9, 2019 on ABC. (ABC)

Inquiring minds have waited for the moment Tamron Hall would really open up and spill the tea about her unceremonious exit from NBC’s Today Show.

And on Monday, when her new talk-show debuted on ABC, Hall addressed the situation head-on, The NY Daily News reports

This time, Hall said she’s “ripping off the mask.” It’s her stage and her time and she didn’t tip-toe around how she ended up fired when Meghan Kelly was given her time slot.

“I go into work one day. I left fired. ‘Demoted’ I guess is what they called it. I called it fired,” Hall said within missing a beat within the first five minutes into her Tamron Hallshow.

“Didn’t matter what I looked like on the outside, inside, I was falling apart. I had worked since I was 14,” she explained.

Hall said that when she was fired, she started getting jobs offers trickling in. Among them was a call from Harvey Weinstein before she knew about the explosive rape allegations that have dogged him.

She said she took the meeting to see what would pan out.

“This is before he had been accused of what we now know is playing out on television and now in a courtroom,” she explained.

However, she said she was inspired to continue pursuing her career after a visit to a domestic violence shelter to help women in need. The trip made her realize, “If they can get up, I can get up.”

Now she’s back in business!

Good for Tamron. We hope the Today Show is taking notes!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

On February 2, 2017 Al Roker announced that Tamron Hall would be leaving the Today show and NBC News. "We want to wish her nothing but the best, much continued success, and cannot wait to see what her next chapter is," Al said at the time.
Right away, the announcement shocked Today show fans, with many wonderingwhat the real reason behind Tamron's sudden departure was (and if it had anything to do with the arrival of Megyn Kelly from Fox News).
Here's what Tamron has said about her exit:

Why did Tamron Hall really leave Today?

Reports began to surface in late January of 2017 that Megyn was "being considered" for her own hour-long program on Today that would air in the fall. She was either going to take over the 9.a.m. hour, which Tamron and Al were running at the time, or the 10 a.m. hour that belonged to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb.
What's more, the network made clear that if they put Megyn in the 10 a.m. slot, they'd move KLG and Hoda up an hour. The same wasn't true for Al and Tamron, however. As The New York Times put it, "the current iteration of the third hour of Today ... will be at thing of the past once Ms. Kelly's show begins."
All while this unnerving news was going around, Tamron's contract with NBC happened to be up in February. The journalist had been with NBC since 2007, having first joined MSNBC and later becoming a part of Today in 2014. She was allegedly in the process of negotiating her contract when the news broke.

However, Tamron decided to walk away just days after reports about Megyn surfaced.

“Yesterday was her last day as an anchor on both networks,” a statement from NBC News read on February 1, 2017. “Tamron is an exceptional journalist, we valued and enjoyed her work at Today and MSNBC and hoped that she would decide to stay. We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best.”

Additionally, Tamron shared her own statement: "The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful. I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.”

Where is Tamron Hall now?

Fast forward to today, and Tamron couldn't be doing better. For one, Tamron recently welcomed her first baby with her husband, Steve Greener, in late April. The 48-year-old journalist was ecstatic to share the news about her baby boy named Moses.

"Moses & Mama!! I can’t wait to introduce y’all to my #sonshine," she wrote on Instagram. "Photo credit: Dad who can’t stop crying tears of joy. Thank y’all for the love and support. It got us here."

Behind the scenes though, Tamron shared with People that she was initially worried about telling people she was pregnant, which explains why she didn't reveal the truth to fans until she was at the 8-month mark.

"I was high-risk, not just because of my age, but there were other medical factors, too,” she told the publication. "I was terrified I would lose this baby and I would have to go back and tell everyone that now it was bad news and after this pregnancy had gone so far.”

Fortunately, Moses and Tamron are doing well. And now, on top of being a new mom, Tamron has her own talk show launching on September 9, 2019. Varietyexplains that the set up will be like the Oprah Winfrey Show and Phil Donahue Show and will cover both light-hearted lifestyle topics as well as in-depth stories.

All in all, Tamron is the living, breathing definition of the old saying, "When one door closes, another one opens." But even though she is thriving now, Tamron admitted to GoodHousekeeping.com that her mind was racing when she left NBC.

"On the outside, it looked like it was all together. 'Look at her, she's walking out, her head up.' My head is never going to be bowed, but I had to pray not to be broken," Tamron explained.

But eventually, she realized that everything does, in fact, happen for a reason.

"I don't think I've ever said this out loud, but every 'no' that I received in my life, and there have been many, it's made sense at some point in time," she reflected. "We are not the biggest job we've landed ... I'm not Tamron from the Today show. I'm Tamron."

Tamron Hall dropped a lot of news on Monday morning, revealing to the world that she is not only pregnant at the age of 48, but that she has also secretly married a man called Steven.  

The former Today show correspondent made the surprise announcements on her Instagram account, sharing a video of herself showing off her 32-week baby bump while dancing to the hit viral song Baby Shark. 

When it came to revealing the news about her secret marriage however, Tamron kept things more low-key, simply referring to the father of her child as her 'husband Steven', while sharing photos of herself with her bump, as well as one snap with her beau. 

Although she did not give away many details about the identity of her husband, it is understood that Tamron has tied the knot with music executive Steven Greener, who formerly managed Will Smith.

In the light-hearted video posted to to her Instagram count at around noon on Monday, Tamron can be seen holding a Baby Shark book in front of her stomach as the ominous Jaws-like intro to the song plays in the background. 

When the cartoon-esque beat drops, Tamron whips away the book and reveals her large baby bump while dancing around to the catchy tune. 

After singing along to the first few lines of the song, she turns to the camera and says: 'Surprise guys! Can you believe it? I'm about to be a mommy shark very soon!'  

Tamron also shared a second post on her account, which featured a high-res image of her wearing the same figure-hugging white dress from the video, as well as one shot of her and her husband, and an image of her cradling her baby bump while in a swimsuit.  

In the caption, the TV host revealed that her pregnancy has not been without its difficulties, explaining that she waited so long to share her happy news in order to ensure that she was 'in a safe place'. 

'I’ve wanted to share this news for many months and now finally my doctor has said I am in a safe place, at 32 weeks, to share my joy with y'all,' she wrote. 

'So, it’s clear a daytime talk show isn’t the only thing I’ve been trying to produce!

'There have been many tears, but today I embrace the smiles. My husband Steven and I are beyond excited! We're in constant prayer, so if you pray, add us to your list; if you meditate, send calmness our way; and if you believe in luck, we’ll happily take that too. 

'More to share in a few weeks when the baby arrives! Next chapter! Blessed and Grateful.' 

Tamron has kept her love life very much under wraps, preferring to keep details about her romances as private as possible. 

However in February 2017, around the same time that she was making her rather abrupt exit from Today, the TV host revealed during an interview with Steve Harvey that she was dating someone who worked in 'entertainment', however gave away few other details as to his identity. 

She did admit that living life in the public eye has made it difficult for her to date, although noted that the toll has actually been more difficult for the men. 

'You know, I feel it’s tougher for the guys, because if I break up with them, then they can go on and be forced to watch me on TV everyday,' she joked. I don’t see them.

It is not known whether the man she referred to back in 2017 is her now-husband, however she is understood to have tied the knot with music executive Steven Greener, the head of music talent management at Primary Wave Entertainment. 

The company works with a wide variety of artists including Alice Cooper, Melissa Etheridge, and Plain White T's. According to Variety, Steven started his music management career looking after Will Smith, and he has also had a hand in the production of several movies.

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Tamron and Steven for comment.

And as if those two pieces of news weren't enough to keep her fans happy, the TV anchor also shared the premiere date of her new talk show Tamron Hall, revealing that it will debut on Monday, September 9. 

'When one door closes… (say it with me) another one opens!' Hall wrote on Instagram.

'@disney just announced that my nationally syndicated daytime talk show Tamron Hall will premiere on 9-9-19! I am also proud to share that I will serve as an Executive Producer on our new show, alongside legendary producer Bill Geddie!'

Before work started on her own talk show, Tamron was formerly the national news anchor for NBC News, day-side anchor for MSNBC, host of the program MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall, and a co-host of Today's Take, the third hour of Today.

However in February 2017 she announced she was leaving Today, shortly before Megyn Kelly was due to take over the third hour of Today from Tamron and Al Roker, who had co-hosted the segment for the previous three years. 

'The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I’m grateful,' Tamron said at the time. 'I’m also very excited about the next chapter. To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you.'

Comment by James Gibbs on Thursday

@ Mr1stroke, totally agree...sadly, this is the reality we all ( Black Americans) live. F*** love, at least use their for the greater good. White society used us far too long. We need too demand that cause. 

Comment by James Gibbs on Thursday

Sounds like Tamron Hall wants to save face from criticism, she made her choice, theres nothing to convince us. She can use the White husband to make positive television shows of black americans in this country, and get us Black Americans our reparations. Tamron's White Husband  will continue to receive privilege and benefits from this country. 

Comment by Lynn on Wednesday
She don’t have to explain herself or make excuses. Can’t let people dictate who you choose to spend the rest of your life with.

Many Black women date and marry outside of the race because they want mixed babies which they think are better looking than Black babies. After the other race men dump them or never marry they they come running back to Black men, only to give Black man a hard time under that BS excuse that they are strong women, whereas when they are with other race men, they are meek and compliant......
