As Temple University looks to further distance itself from its most famous alum, Bill Cosby, another notable graduate of the Philadelphia college will take his place.
Temple University trustees voted Tuesday to have NBC News correspondent and Today host Tamron Hall fill a seat on the board vacated by Bill Cosby last year.
Board chairman Patrick O'Connor said last week that Hall, a 1992 Temple grad, had the support she needs for approval. the board approved her unanimously Tuesday afternoon.
O'Connor told the Philadelphia Inquirer that Hall is a "vibrant, loyal alum" who will add "a new dimension" to the 36-member board. Only a handful of women sit on the board.
Hall, 45, grew up in Texas and joined NBC in 2007. She currently hosts an hour of the Today show.
In a story in the school's magazine, she says Temple "gave me my confidence.”
Cosby resigned from the board in December following renewed allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted women over many years. He's never been charged with a crime.
