Tamron Hall joining 'Today' 3rd hour as a co-host

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC says Tamron Hall is joining the third hour of the "Today" show as a co-host.

Hall will supplement a team already comprising Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist. A regular "Today" show fill-in host, Hall has recently interviewed Hugh Jackman and Mariah Carey. She is also the anchor of MSNBC's "NewsNation." She joined MSNBC in 2007.

She is the host of Investigation Discovery's "Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall" and TLC's "Sister Wives." "Today" executive producer Don Nash said Hall brings "wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility" to the team.

The third hour of NBC's "Today" airs at 9 a.m. Eastern.
