Tamron Hall Reflects on Becoming a Journalist

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall is the subject of a Q&A in this month’s Ebony. The “News Nation” anchor talks about how she chose journalism as a profession, saying the news was a way of life for her family:

EBONY:  Is there a particular moment or story that led you to realize news was the way you wanted to communicate with the world?

Tamron Hall: I wouldn’t say there was a moment or story but like many families back then, my family had 35 channels, and we’d spend our evenings in front of the TV, talking about the evening news. My dad was in the army so what was happening internationally and nationally was always important to my family. The thread that has always connected my family was the news. Looking back, I’ve always enjoyed hearing about the lives of other people, their experience through their jobs, their lives and their children. It’s always been a treat to hear about others.
