Al Roker commented Thursday on Tamron Hall's exit from Today.
A day after the news of Hall's departure from Today, her 'Today's Take' co-host Roker has given his own personal touch on the news.
"As some of you may have heard by now, our good friend Tamron Hall has decided to leave NBC News," Roker said on Thursday's episode of Today. "Personally, Tamron has been not just a co-host here on 'Today's Take' for the past three years, but a good friend -- and not just to me, to all of us here."

"The last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I'm grateful. I'm also very excited about the next chapter," Hall said in her own statement Wednesday. "To all my great colleagues, I will miss you and I will be rooting for you."
There were rumors that Hall turned down a huge offer to stay at NBC because of their decision to cancel Roker and Hall's hour of Today to make room for incoming anchor Megyn Kelly.
"Tamron was offered a brand-new deal - a very, very good deal," a source told People. "And Al is still a huge, integral part of the show. He remains under long-term contract."
Kelly's hour of Today will premiere later in the year and Roker is expected to stay in the 9 a.m. ET/PT hour and be incorporated into the first two hours of the show as well. Hall's next move is not yet known.
