Rumor has it that Tamron Hall will no longer host the third hour of “Today’s” popular morning show.
On Friday, People revealed that Megyn Kelly, who recently left Fox News for a new role at NBC News, will either take over “Today‘s” third hour, currently hosted by Hall. 46 and Al Roker, 62 or Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb‘s 10 a.m. slot. Meanwhile, a source told the entertainment news outlet that if Kelly, 46, takes over the fourth hour, Gifford, 63, and Kotb, 52, will be moved to the 9 a.m. slot. In other words, Hall, 46, and Roker, 62, will no longer co-host an hour-long program together.
Not to our surprise, viewers aren’t feeling it. “I live for @TamronHall every single weekday morning. Are they insane over at the @TODAYshow?” one user tweeted.
“This is pathetic. @tamronhall is loved by all of us. She is genuine, intelligent, and compassionate. I won’t be tuning in for Megyn,” added another.
Megyn Kelly is going to replace Tamron Hall? That’s wild. https://t.co/5Fq8xbFicQ

Though Kelly’s “Today” slot isn’t expected to begin until the fall, fans can still get their Hall fix as she also anchors MSNBC Live, a daily news program airing at 11 a.m. on MSNBC.
Despite the shocking reports, on Thursday, Roker and Hall both turned to Twitter to celebrate their success in the ratings race.
