Tamron Hall is a strong advocate for victims of domestic violence, inspired by personal loss
As an award-winning journalist, TAMRON HALL is no stranger to tough topics that hit close to home. In an interview with Fast Company, Hall shares that real-life stories she covered as a hard-hitting journalist inspired her debut novel As the Wicked Watch, which became an instant Editor’s Pick on Amazon. Through her writing, the revered host of The Tamron Hall Show was able to process what she had experienced as a reporter, “and also what I’d experienced as a family member of someone whose life was cut short because of violence.” Hall has previously opened up about her sister’s murder, which is an unsolved crime believed to have been committed by someone she knew. As she told to Forbes, she was drawn to her new series, Court TV’s Someone They Knew, because “the team behind this show were focused on what we can learn from these cases versus ‘the glam crime’ that’s become so popular.” In other crime stories, Hall “often felt something was missing,” she shared with ABC News; “sometimes the reminder was missing that this was a real person.”
In addition to voicing her advocacy through creative mediums, the Variety “Power of Women” honoree has been making a difference through her work with Safe Horizon – a national organization that offers a variety of programs to support survivors of abuse. Hall established The Tamron ♥ Renate Fund in her sister’s honor, to aid Safe Horizon in their work, and also serves as an ambassador for the organization. No matter the issue, Hall empowers audiences with her warmth and candor, making an impact with audiences of all kinds.
