Iowa Women Lead Change is bringing its signature leadership conference to the Quad-Cities next spring with a lineup of speakers that includes Tamron Hall, the host of Investigation Discovery’s “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” and the former anchor for MSNBC and NBC’s Today Show.

Iowa Women Lead Change, or IWLC, announced that Hall will close the inaugural Quad-Cities Leadership Conference on March 29 at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf. 

“Tamron Hall brings with her a strong message of women’s empowerment,” said Tiffany O’Donnell, IWLC’s chief executive officer. “Her personal and professional journey will inspire many women and men looking to get to the next level of leadership.” 

Talk about a case of good timing. Just as IWLC was sharing news of signing the award-winning journalist, Today Show fans and others were discussing Hall as a possible replacement for the recently dismissed Matt Lauer, who has been accused of sexual improprieties aimed at

10 Women Who Could Replace Charlie Rose

CBS has officially fired Charlie Rose, the longtime journalist and television host, following a number of sexual harassment allegations reported this week in The Washington Post. A memo was sent out to CBS News staffers that reads: “Despite Charlie’s important contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace—a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place.”

Agreed, CBS. Which is why, as Mother Jones Editor-in-Chief Clara Jeffrey suggests, it’d be a great idea to offer the spot to one of the many competent, successful female journalists working today. Following her lead, we break down a few choice candidates. Male CBS News execs, don’t pretend you don’t have options!

Clayton case returning to TV

The case of the killing of Kelley Stage Clayton will be featured Sunday on an episode of Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall, airing at 9 p.m. on Investigation Discovery (Spectrum Cable channel 138).

Hall works with a team of correspondents on the show, which features a panel format along with interviews.

For this episode, Hall interviewed prosecutors, law enforcement and family members involved in the case, along with journalists who covered it.

Hall developed an interest in covering crime and domestic abuse after the still-unprosecuted murder of her sister in 2004.

The case was previously featured in March on an episode of NBC’s news magazine show Dateline.

Deadline: Crime’s presentation promises to be very different, because of the differing format of the show.

Thomas Clayton, Kelley’s husband, and his former employee Michael Beard were both convicted of first-degree murder in her death.

Clayton hired Beard to kill his wife

Deadline Crime with Tamron Hall episode “The Vanishing Clerk”

The Heidi Allen Case: Who Killed Her?

Even after almost 25 years, people still want to know if Gary Thibodeau was really the one who kidnapped and killed Heidi Allen. Many believe someone else took her from the convenience store that Easter morning. That’s what Investigation Discovery’s Deadline Crime with Tamron Hall will investigate.

More men behaving badly

We do love CNN anchor Erin Burnett. With the exception ofthe days she was reporting from Las Vegas in the aftermath of the massacre we’vealready pushed out of the news cycle, when she looked truly shaken, she neverfails to call out Trump.

Oct. 12 was no exception. Burnett labeled Trump the”hypocrite-in-chief” on her show “Out Front” after Trumpsigned his 50th executive order in office. That 50th EO rescinded the subsidiesone in five Americans receives for their healthcare. Burnett said,”Hypocrite-in-chief Pres. Trump did something today he harshly criticizedPres. Obama for doing. Trump signed his 50th executive order.” She thendetailed in old Trump tweets how he’d referred to Obama’s executive orders as”authoritarian” and “power grabs.” Huh.

Speaking of women who call out Trump, Minority Leader NancyPelosi was interviewed by David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” on CNNSat., Oct. 14. Some days it seems Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Kamala Harris areamong the only people in

Tamron Hall Says She Called Harvey Weinstein to Confront Him About ‘Horrifying’ Sexual Assault Allegations


Tamron Hall got to know Harvey Weinstein in the wake of her NBC exit last February, building a friendship with the Hollywood producer and even signing a talk-show development deal with The Weinstein Company three months ago.

But as a longtime detractor of crimes against women, the 47-year-old journalist says she found the allegations of decades of sexual misconduct against Weinstein to be “horrifying” — and called him directly to tell him so.

“It’s a woman’s worst nightmare to be in a situation where you believe someone more powerful has control over your life,” Hall told the The Huffington Post on Tuesday, explaining that she was in her home state of Texas visiting Safe Haven Shelter for Women when she found out about the scandal. “I immediately thought about the women who have suffered in
