Talk show host Tamron Hall is married to a White man, but she's adamant that she still loves Black men.

Tamron spoke to reporters, where she discussed getting married to a White man, tv executive Steve Greener.

Tamron told reporters, “I never imagined my husband would be white. I grew up in Texas in a predominately Black neighborhood. I’ve dated almost exclusively men of color, Black men. He just so happened to be the person I fell in love with.”

Tamron continued, ”In no way did marrying my husband mean that Black men had failed me. I was raised by an unapologetic Black man who served in this country’s army for 30 years. That’s who I am. That’s the fiber of who I am.”

And according to Tamron, her Caucasian husbands understand the struggles of Black people. She explained, "My husband used to be the executive producer of the ‘Bernie Mac Show’ and won a Peabody Award for it. One of the most powerful images of a strong black father figure in TV.”

In July 2007, Hall joined the national news network MSNBC and NBC News.[2] She also landed a one-on-one interview with Barack Obama before he announced his run for presidency in 2008.

At MSNBC, Hall served as a general reporter and fill-in anchor, first achieving prominence as a substitute anchor for Keith Olbermann on Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Hall then joined David Shuster as co-host of a two-hour program, The Big Picture, which premiered June 1, 2009, and concluded January 29, 2010. Hall anchored as a substitute for Natalie Morales, and also anchored on the weekends.

On February 1, 2017, with Hall's contract expiring within the month, NBC News and Hall released a joint statement confirming Hall's decision to depart from both NBC and MSNBC.
