Tamron Hall

Executive producer Candi Carter has left the Tamron Hall Show, becoming the third EP to do so in less than two years.

Though an official statement has not been issued by either side, the Daily Mail reports a source close to the show attributes Carter’s abrupt departure to the “toxic” work environment created by Hall.

“Candi was so done with Tamron that she requested that ABC take her off the show,” the source said. “The environment that Tamron has created on her show is toxic. It is literally bleeding staff.”

Prior to leading the Tamron Hall Show, Carter was at The View, where she had become the first Black woman to head the long-running talk show. In March 2020, Hall had nothing but praise for her new executive producer during a digital news conference with several reporters.

“You always need a coach,” she said. “I don’t care how good you are, you need a coach. She is my Phil Jackson. I know this show is in great hands and I know the quality of what we’re seeing right now in this makeshift studio is because of her. Point blank, period.”
