WASHINGTON, D.C. — She’s a two-time Emmy Award-winning talk show host, journalist, producer and author.
Now, she has a seat on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF).
Joining the NABLF Board is Tamron Hall, who will also serve in the newly created position of industry ambassador.
This will see Hall working with NABLF on campaigns and fundraising efforts to help shape the future of the Foundation, the NAB shared on Monday (7/25).
In her role as industry ambassador, Hall will continue helping NABLF honor broadcast radio and television stations’ community service efforts through the Foundation’s annual Celebration of Service to America Awards, which Hall hosted in 2020. Hall will also help promote and engage with other NABLF initiatives, such as the Broadcast Leadership Training Program, Media Sales Academy and the newly announced Emerson Coleman Fellowship.
Hall has earned two Daytime Emmy Awards and a Gracie Award for her eponymous nationally syndicated daytime talk show, produced and distributed by ABC News and The Walt Disney Company. Throughout her career, Hall has worked at several local television stations, including Gray Television’s KBTX-TV in College Station, Tex.; CBS O&O KTVT-11 in Dallas; and Fox Television’s WFLD-32 in Chicago. From there, Hall spent time at MSNBC and at NBC, where she became the first African American woman to co-host TODAY, in 2014.
“Tamron Hall exemplifies the values of NABLF through her commitment to service, advocacy and diversity,” NAB Leadership Foundation President Michelle Duke said. “Her strong record of public service and leadership makes her uniquely qualified to serve as a champion for the Foundation and for broadcasting. We look forward to her partnership and working with her to make our industry better.”
