Kelly Clarkson has confirmed that she will be getting her own daytime talk show, set to launch in the fall of 2019. The Kelly Clarkson Show will air on NBCUniversal-owned TV stations around the country and according to Deadline, will have a prime slot as the lead-in to Ellen. Steve Harvey‘s talk show, currently just called Steve, has aired before Ellen for the past seven years and its fate is unknown.
Clarkson is already in the NBC family with her role as part of The Voice, which is what led to her landing a talk show pilot of her own.
“The incomparable Kelly Clarkson takes everything she touches to another level and we couldn’t be happier to bring her talent, humor, generosity and compassion to daytime next year,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative & Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “With Kelly’s cross-generational appeal and extraordinary ability to understand and connect with viewers, The Kelly Clarkson Show will have something for everyone.”
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson said. “Having my own talk show where I get to do all of these things is pretty much a dream job!”
“We are very excited to have Kelly Clarkson on our air next fall,” said Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned TV Stations. “She’s genuine, warm, fun and interacts with her fans in a meaningful way. She will be the perfect companion to Ellen, providing an afternoon of great television.”
