The Today Show family just got a little bigger.

Tamron Hall has been named co-host of Today’s Take, the 9 a.m. hour of the show, for which she will join current hosts Al Roker, Natalie Morales, and Willie Geist. Hall’s new role was announced on The Today Show this morning.

“We’re really excited to officially welcome Tamron into the Today family,” executive producer Don Nash said in a press release. “She brings wit, enthusiasm and a keen sensibility to an all-around fantastic team, and I think Tamron, Al, Natalie and Willie will have a lot of fun together hosting the third hour.”

Most Today fans will already recognize Hall, as she’s been a go-to fill-in for the show. Hall also anchors MSNBC’s NewsNation.
