Looks like Jeff Probst is going to be a BUSY man!
Last we heard from the Survivor host, we were speculating that he'll be hosting the series pretty much forever because the show is still bringing in impressive numbers.
While he may host Survivor until the end of time, he'll also be hosting a talk show, apparently!
That's right, folks. Jeff Probst has made a deal with CBS Television Distribution to host an hourlong talk show starting in fall 2012, which will "cover topics ranging from newsmakers of the day to families and individuals facing challenges
Here's what CTD president John Nogawski had to say about it:
"There's no one else in daytime TV like Jeff Probst. He is interested in finding the answers to the same questions our audience is asking, which makes him relatable to both women and men."
"Anyone who has seen Jeff on Survivor knows how he connects with people and has an instinct that makes him a natural and compelling host for daytime. Whether it's a newsmaker-of-the-day, a celebrity or ordinary folks, Jeff will go further than typical discussion."
And here's what Jeff had to say about his new show:
"I'm fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level."
Good luck with the new show, Jeff! Maybe next you can direct another movie! Anyone out there see Jeff's 2001 film Finder's Fee with Ryan Reynolds???
Will U tune in for Jeff Probst's daytime talk show when it debuts in fall 2012?
