Tamron Hall has been in the news and broadcast world for over 10 years, having major accolades and adding big-name daytime shows to her roster. In September of 2019, Hall, in partnership with Disney, debuted her very own, Tamron Hall Show and the success just keeps ringing in.

The Tamron Hall Show has welcomed guests such as Tyler Perry, Kelly Rowland and Bishop T.D. Jakes. With topics ranging from online dating, drug addiction, transgender children and more. Her goal is to keep things real, relatable and at times, unpredictable.

“It’s thrilling,” she says of finally having her television show. “But coming from a military family, I understand we need to keep our heads down and continue to do the work. I feel a sense of responsibility to my team and to our audience, to make sure we’re always excelling.”

As one of the highest-rated shows to come out within the last years, the show was renewed for a second season and announced at the end of last year. Hall expressed great excitement over the news, the second season she says is for growth.

“We’re going to do better and do more. We want to grow every day and continue to evolve the show into its own voice in daytime, where we can come together and talk about things that are fun and entertaining, and also hear stories that are deeply moving.”

A newlywed to music producer Steven Greener and first-time mom, Tamron made a return to daytime television in control and on her own accord. Her son, Moses, was born in May of 2019, just months before her new show premiered. As a new mom, Hall balances her work and mommy-life with a ton of help and consistent support from her loving family.

“It’s impossible to do it all,” she expresses with emphasis. “Thankfully I have help from my family members and a nanny who can make sure Moses is taken care of while I am at work.”

She shares her favorite part of being a mom, “Motherhood is truly like having your heart live outside of your body. I did not know that it was possible for me to love my son this much and it is amazing to watch him grow.”

Regardless of the role, Hall believes in being true and remaining in that light. Her driving principles being honesty and authenticity, while, “creat[ing] a show that my family, my son, and the people who have always cheered me on can be proud of.”

“When I was starting the show, I knew that the TV landscape wasn’t forgiving for women, especially for Black women and as it relates to age,” she says of the challenges she’s now overcome with her daytime talk show.

“I know how it feels to be the only woman in a room full of men, or the only Black woman in a room with no diversity. When I put together my show, it was important for me to have a diverse staff to address the gender and racial disparity in television and ensure I’m building a show where everyone has a seat at the table.”

“Setbacks don’t mean failure; you never know when you’re really getting set up for the next opportunity,” she continued.

So far, she’s accomplished her goal of keeping her family and fans proud and on her side. Her show has been one of her biggest accomplishments and she’s succeeded in breaking down barriers continuously reaching new heights.

Her greatest joy, she shared, “Having my very own show where I get to speak with legends like Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, and Cicely Tyson every day and connect with the TamFam, who have supported me all these years.”
