As we reported earlier this month, the radio personality has been in talks to host the ABC reboot which could air early next year. Fast forward to this week, the new Live! host is reportedly very close to reaching a deal, meaning he is definitely in!
According to sources, the network is hoping to fill the slots with Idol alums, which could include Carrie Underwood, Adam Lambert, and Chris Daughtry (although other sources say he hasn’t been contacted).
Either way, it’s going to be an A-list panel!
