Meredith Vieira is returning to daytime television. The TV personality will be launching a new syndicated talk show in 2014. “The Meredith Vieira Show” will be produced and distributed by NBCUniversal.
“All of us at NBCU are so excited about this new show with Meredith,” said Ted Harbert, chairman of NBC Broadcasting. “She creates an instant connection with audiences with her smart, quick-witted and down-to-earth style. This entertaining and substantive show will be a great way to reach her loyal daytime fans as well as new ones who will discover why Meredith is one of America’s most loved television personalities.”
“As a journalist on ‘Today’ and ’60 Minutes,’ I learned how to really listen to people and help give them a voice. On ‘The View,’ I unleashed my own opinionated self and discovered the empowerment that comes with sometimes heated, but always respectful, discussion,” Vieira said. “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.”
“The Meredith Vieira Show” will premiere on NBC in fall 2014.
