It has been 450 days since Tamron Hall walked out of Today’s studio in New York City after learning that she would be losing her spot as host of the NBC morning show’s third hour to the network’s new hire, Megyn Kelly. In that time Hall has said nothing about about her abrupt exit from NBC News after a decade with the network or how she felt about the decision to replace her on Today with Kelly.

That all changed on Wednesday however, when Hall made it very clear how she felt about NBC by posting a photo of herself driving by Today with the caption: ‘Heyyyyyy!’

 

Hall’s tweet was more about the context than content though, as she broke her silence just two hours after it was revealed that the third hour of Today had been pulling in fewer viewers and been less profitable ever since the arrival of Kelly. This masterclass of shade was made all the more remarkable by the fact that it was 15 months in the making, with Hall waiting until just the right moment to strike.
