NBC News leading lady Tamron Hall is about to add yet another accolade to her impressive resume.
As Bill Cosby’s career continues on a downward spiral in the wake of mounting rape allegations, Tamron has been nominated to replace Cosby as a member of the Temple University trustees board following his resignation from the board in December of 2014.
According to The Philadelphia Enquirer, the trustees are set to vote on Tuesday and Tamron is a surefire front-runner to fill the seat. Current board chairman Patrick O’Connor reportedly spoke highly of Tamron in light of the nomination, describing her as a “vibrant, loyal alum” who will add “a new dimension” to the 36-member board.
Tamron graduated from Temple with a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism and has since gone on to become a vital member of the NBC News team. Some of her most notable achievements include hosting her own MSNBC Live With Tamron Hall show and making history as the first African-American woman to co-anchor The Today Show.
Congrats to Tamron on this exciting news!
