After sitting empty for ten months, the vacant seat of the Temple Board of Trustees has been filled.
Tamron Hall, a 1992 graduate of Temple’s School of Media and Communication, has been reported to take over the empty chair, as decided by an official vote from the 36-member board on Tuesday.
Bill Cosby vacated the seat this past December after more victims came forward stating the comedian sexually assaulted and drugged them. Although charges against Cosby have never been confirmed, Temple cut all ties with the TV mogul.
“Tamron is a supremely talented journalist and television anchor who represents the best of our school of Media and Communication and this university,” said Board of Trustees Chairman Patrick O’Conner to Temple Now, Temple University’s Weekly e-newsletter.
Ms. Hall visited Temple during December 2014, when she delivered a commencement speech to the graduating class of the School of Media and Communication. She also spent time talking with students from Temple Update.
