Tamron Hall on MSNBC’s Primetime: ‘I have great admiration for them. But it’s not something I am interested in’

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall tells Atlantic Wire what makes her show — during MSNBC’s mid-afternoons — different than what MSNBC primetime is all about:

What I present on air and what we present on our show is information. I don’t want to be a pundit. I don’t want to be a partisan. I have no desire. Obviously, I know MSNBC is associated with being liberal. I look at it this way: a) that’s not a bad association, b) if you watch our program you would clearly see that there’s a difference between our show and primetime. I admire Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow and Reverend Al Sharpton. I have great admiration for them. But it’s not something I am interested in. I know why I’m a journalist and why I chose to enter this profession. I was raised in the red state of Texas and I love my state. I also enjoy living in New York and going to gay pride parades with my best friends.
