Tamron Hall, 43, is squeezing onto that crowded Today show couch. She was announced this morning as a new official co-host for the morning show, joining Al Roker, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist for Today's Take, the 9 a.m. hour.

Hall, who has been a regular fill-in host, has recently interviewed Hugh Jackman and Mariah Carey and has spent time in the Orange Room.

On Monday's show, she spent a few minutes at the top of the third hour discussing her Anita Baker-inspired hairdo (which she has had since she was 18) before turning to the other co-hosts.
