Starting next fall, Meredith Vieira will be bringing a little bit of her own home into daytime viewers' homes.
The former "Today" and "The View" co-host is launching a new daytime talk show, titled "The Meredith Vieira Show," which will be nationally syndicated by NBCUniversal in September 2014.
Taped in New York City, the show will feature a mix of celebrity, lifestyle and human interest stories, and will boast a distinctly "Vieira" feel. The set will feature actual furniture and family photos from the 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?' host's home. NBC describes the show as "an exceptional mix of daytime fun along with feel-good human interest stories from everyday people to celebrity guests who have an important story to tell, lifestyle segments and key topics that highlight Vieira's warm, relatable and."
"As a journalist on 'Today' and '60 Minutes,' I learned how to really listen to people and help give them a voice," Vieira, who will also executive produce the daily show, said in a statement. "On 'The View,' I unleashed my own opinionated self and discovered the empowerment that comes with sometimes heated, but always respectful, discussion. And on 'Millionaire,' I relished the joy of changing people's lives while having pure fun. All of these experiences, along with being a wife and mom, have led me here because they all share one common denominator ... this fundamental need we have to connect with and find inspiration in each other."
