NBC said Hall, who also hosted an hour of news programming each morning on MSNBC, had her last day at the network on Tuesday.
"Tamron Hall will be leaving NBC News and MSNBC when her contract expires this month", the company said in a statement.
"She was offered a lot of money to stay ... a new multi-year, multi-million dollar deal to stay at the Today show and MSNBC and she turned it down", a source tells PEOPLE about Hall's exit.
"The last ten years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I'm grateful", Hall said in a statement provided by NBC News". But only because she no longer had a job with NBC News. She continued on to host NewsNation with Tamron Hall at the same network, which (until yesterday) aired daily at 11 a.m.
Roker will continue to host the Today show's third hour until a new lineup takes over in the fall, according to NBC Universal. "I'm also very excited about the next chapter". "We are disappointed that she has chosen to leave, but we wish her all the best".
Last summer, following the departure of Natalie Morales and Willie Geist, newcomer Billy Bush lasted only a few rocky weeks. (She continues to appear on Today as the program's West Coast anchor.) Geist, who also co-hosted the 9 a.m. hour, left to focus on Today's revamped Sunday edition, which he now anchors. He was brought down quickly by the release of the infamous and offensive bombshell "Access Hollywood" hot-mic video featuring President-elect Donald Trump. But if it is scheduled at 10 a.m., then Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb's show will move up to 9 a.m.
Earlier this month, rumors began circulating that Kelly is being groomed to take over Savannah Guthrie's anchor spot on the "Today" show.
