Mel Robbins to Host Syndicated Daytime Talk Show – The Hollywood Reporter

Mel Robbins, the best-selling author behind 5 second rule, gets its own syndicated daytime talk show.

Producers Sony Pictures Television announced on Tuesday that they are teaming up with Tribune Broadcasting on the untitled syndicated show. The series has been sold to over 31% nationwide and will debut on Tribune-owned stations in fall 2019.

Mindy Borman, winner of a Daytime Emmy for her work on The Dr Oz Showwill serve as executive producer on the daytime talk show, which is described as a classic conversational format with a modern reimagining.

“Mel has a proven track record of connecting and resonating with an audience and we believe she will be a great fit for our stations’ daytime programming,” said Sean Compton, President of Strategic Programming and Acquisitions at Tribune Media. .

Robbins is the CEO and co-founder of The Confidence Project, a media and digital learning company that works with Fortune 500 brands. She is the creator and star of the Audible series Kick ass with Mel Robbins, a life and business advice talk show. She began her career as a criminal defense attorney in New York.

Robbins becomes the latest to enter the syndicated daytime talk show market. Kelly Clarkson will launch her own series next fall, replacing Steve Harvey’s Steve on groups of television stations owned by NBC in 30% of the country.
