Al Roker Fed Up with NBC?


Last week NBC news corespondent Tamron Hall walked away from a $2 million deal after her top-rated morning show with Al Roker was canceled to make room Fox News' Megyn Kelly [click here if you missed that].

Is Al Roker the next to go..?

From The Daily Mail
The news of their cancellation was announced to Roker and Hall on same day it was confirmed that they had beaten Live with Kelly in the key demo for the month of January, according to an insider.
And they had won they key demo for eight straight weeks when Today decided to inform them of the [Megyn] Kelly news.
Al and Tamron were told Friday after Today ended and just a few mins before she was going on air to host MSNBC live. 
Hall walked away from the money on Tuesday - leaving her cohost not too happy.
'Al's upset because it's his friend, but he's also upset because he lost the show. And this is the second time the network has done this to him,' a network source told Dailymail.com. 
NBC is said to have paid upwards of $12 million to woo Megyn Kelly away from Fox.

NBC executives are savages and both Savannah and Matt are in danger.

They don't think black people watch these shows. When micheal left live with Kelly their ratings went down. You would think they would rather have a show that both whites and minority watch instead of a show only whites watch. I like watching shows with people that look like me. So fuck white supremacy.

@I0:46 No sweetheart, It's unethical. You are sending a bad message to people of color, causing them to have a feeling of discomfort, and making them feel like they are underrepresented by taking away Diversity. It's a sad state of affairs to see two intelligent people of color leave the show and all of a sudden, have just 1 woman of a dominant race. I wouldn't check for the show either

I am not of person of color and I can't stand Megyn Kelly. I see her as an opportunist. This will fail.

People, especially people of color, use the information available to educate yourself on financial wealth. Don't let some employer use your talents against you. Use what your gifted or cultivated with and become a Boss/Bawse. I ain't throwing away what I learn for you to take all credit for it.
This isn't to say to quit your job. Keep it but have a plan. Once you accomplished that plan, and stuff like this happens, you should be alright financially
