Actress and singer Keke Palmer will become the youngest talk show host in TV history as BET Network and Telepictures partner for a new talk show for young adults with the star.
Keke Palmer Will Be The Youngest Talk Show Host In TV History!
BET Network has given the 20year old a platform many young adults would probably kill to have!
As one time fourth highest paid child star on television few years ago, the 20 year old media maven will be making her debut with The Keke Palmer Project, a move which will be compared to the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and Queen Latifah.
According to the star, her repeated quote posts on social media garnered thousands of fans commenting and so a talk show for young people like herself. On her desire to be a talk show host, Keke revealed:
I come from a very small, poor town just outside of the Chicago area and I know what it’s like to dream and accomplish some of your goals, but I would never want to do a show where I am preaching to anyone because I do not like being preached at. I want to learn right along with my audience and every show will be a collaborative effort. I am so thankful to Debra Lee and everyone at the BET Network for providing me with this unique opportunity and platform.This is amazing! We need more positive young females on television that young women can look up to.
When the show premieres in July, Keke will become the youngest talk show host in history. The title is currently held by Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she began her show.
Guys would you look forward to Keke Palmer’ aka Akeelah’s forthcoming TV show?
