*MSNBC’s Tamron Hall is said to be disappointed she was not included in her network’s coverage of the Olympic games.

According to Radar Online, the “Today” show correspondent and host of NBC’s “News Nation” had lobbied her bosses at to go to Sochi but was ultimately turned down and told she wasn’t needed in Russia.

Tamron has been “an absolute hit with the viewers whenever she substitutes for one of the regular hosts during the third hour of ‘Today.’ The audience responds to Tamron’s authenticity….she is a team player, and the crew really likes her. Tamron made it known to her bosses that she wanted to be a part of ‘Today’s’ Olympic coverage but she was turned down. It was extremely disappointing to Tamron, but she has moved on,” a source told the website.

Another source said, “Tamron does want to be a much bigger part of ‘Today,’ and the audience would love her. It just seems off that head honchos at NBC aren’t listening to the audience.”
