*Temple University trustees are expected to vote next week on naming MSNBC and “Today” anchor Tamron Hall to fill a seat on the board vacated by Bill Cosby last year.
Board chairman Patrick O’Connor said the 1992 Temple grad has the support she needs for approval when trustees vote on Tuesday, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.
O’Connor called Hall a “vibrant, loyal alum” who will add “a new dimension” to the 36-member board.
In a story in the school’s magazine, the Texas native 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.
