TODAY Show Co-host Tamron Hall to Replace Bill Cosby On Temple Board Of Trustees

  NBC’s Tamron Hall has been tapped by Temple University to replace Bill Cosby on the school's board of trustees, Philly reports.

45-year-old Hall is a 1992 graduate of the university and covers the current issue of Temple Magazine. In the magazine she takes pride in the university saying, "I'm the girl who came to Temple never having seen Philadelphia. This city gave me my soul. This university gave me my confidence."
The board, which has been criticized for its lack of diversity, believes Hall will be a perfect fit. "We went up [to New York] and had lunch with her. She blew my socks off," said Patrick O'Connor, chairman of the board of trustees. "She's a home run for us. . . . She's an exciting, vibrant, loyal alum. She'll add a new dimension to our board."

Hall co-hosts the 9 a.m. hour of the Today Show and anchors NewsNation on MSNBC.
