NBC News’ Tamron Hall has joined Today as an official co-host for the morning show. Hall’s new gig was announced on the telecast Monday morning. She will join Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist for morning show’s 9 a.m. hour.

“We’re really excited to officially welcome Tamron into the Today family,” said Don Nash, Executive Producer in a statement. “She brings wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility to an all-around fantastic team, and I think Tamron, Al, Natalie and Willie will have a lot of fun together hosting the third hour.”
