The syndicated talker “Tamron Hall,” which is distributed by Disney, has been moved under the purview of ABC News.

The show, which is named for former NBC News personality Tamron Hall, has been distributed by Disney since its debut in 2019 and airs on the network’s owned stations, will now be controlled by the news division of ABC.

This move is similar to how the network moved its talk show “The View” under the ABC News umbrella in 2014. The show had always aired on ABC but was previously managed under various entertainment units associated with the network.

Since leaving NBC and launching her self titled talk show, Hall has also contributed to ABC News, including its “Soul of a Nation” series.

Candi Carter, the executive producer of “Tamron Hall” will continue on as showrunner, Kim Godwin, president of ABC News noted in the announcement Friday, Aug. 20, 2021.

“Tamron Hall” is produced inside of the same Lincoln Square facility as shows such as “World News Tonight” originates, in the studio previously home to “The Chew.”

In addition to “The View,” ABC News also produces an afternoon hour under the name “GMA3: What You Need to Know,” which replaced the talk show the network launched to replace “The Chew” originally hosted by Michael Strahan and Sara Haines, with Keke Palmer briefly joining before the show ended.

“Pandemic: What You Need to Know” was originally meant as a temporary replacement for “Strahan, Sara & Keke” as the coronavirus pandemic unfolded, but eventually the renamed show was made permanent.

The show is scheduled to return for its third season Sept. 6, 2021.
