Nationally Syndicated Daytime Talk Show to Debut in Fall 2019
The Kelly Clarkson Show has been sold to the NBC Owned Television Station group for a fall 2019 debut. The NBCUniversal Domestic TV Distribution produced show will see Clarkson hosting a one-hour talk show that leads into Ellen.
WNBC New York, KNBC Los Angeles, WMAQ Chicago, WCAU Philadelphia, KXAS Dallas-Fort Worth, KNTV San Francisco, WRC Washington DC, WTVJ Miami, KNSD San Diego and WVIT Hartford will all be airing the series. The new show will also air in Boston on NBC-owned station WBTS. The 11 NBC owned stations can be viewed in nearly 30% of U.S. households.
“I love connecting with people, playing games, music and finding ways to help or give back to communities/organizations,” Clarkson says in a press release. “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,” states Valari Staab, President, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations. “She’s genuine, warm, fun and interacts with her fans in a meaningful way. Throughout her career people of all ages and backgrounds have related to her openness, honesty and curiosity. She will be the perfect companion to ‘Ellen,’ providing an afternoon of great television.”
“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,” says 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.”
In her new daytime talk show, Clarkson uses her gift of connection to bring viewers something new: a fun, energetic show that breaks with tradition. In each episode audiences will experience an hour full of remarkable stories, celebrity guests, spontaneous surprises, humor, heart and, of course, good music! It’s like a weekday brunch party with a fascinating guest list of people who would otherwise never meet.
