NBC’s Al Roker will be back in the anchor chair in the 9am hour of the “Today” show. This, after he was replaced by Megyn Kelly.
Unfortunately for viewers and fans Roker won’t have his former co-host, Tamron Hall, because she was fired completely from the network to make room for the racist Kelly. In any event, sources tell TMZ that with Roker, the network will go back to using it’s own tried and true in-house talent.
Megyn Kelly’s ratings have been tanking anyway and her racist comments regarding blackface (below) were just the final nail in the coffin. Her poor ratings also affected Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford’s show that came on afterwards.
If you missed it, the Monday show was anchored by Craig Melvin, Hoda and Al. It’s unclear if Hoda will also be part of the 9 AM team. It seems unlikely, because she’s already on from 7 – 9 AM and again at 10 AM.
