The newly minted Late Night host is set to headline the awards show on Aug. 25
It’ll be Late Night in prime time as Seth Meyers gets set to host the 66th annual Emmy Awards on Aug. 25.
NBC named the newly minted talk-show host to lead the broadcast Thursday, the same day Meyers was revealed to be on Time‘s 100 Most Influential People list.
“Seth is such a talented performer and writer, and we know he will bring something unique to hosting the Primetime Emmy Awards,” said Bruce Rosenblum, head of the Television Academy, in a statement.
The Late Night with Seth Meyers star succeeds last year’s host, Neil Patrick Harris, in the gig.
The Emmys will air on NBC on Monday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. ET.
