CBS has tapped guest host Marie Osmond to become a regular member of the team at The Talk for the show’s upcoming 10th season. Osmond will take a seat at the table alongside Eve, Carrie Ann Inaba, Sharon Osbourne, and Sheryl Underwood when the new season debuts in September 2019.
Osmond’s taking over Sara Gilbert’s spot on the Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show. Gilbert announced in April that she’s exiting the show.
“If you’ve seen Marie Osmond guest host on The Talk over the past nine seasons, you know she’s the perfect addition to the show,” stated Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs, and Syndicated Programs Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution. “Marie’s impressive career accomplishments have endeared her to fans throughout the decades. Her willingness to be authentic and share personal triumphs and struggles with honesty in the hopes of helping others always resonates. I’m excited to kick off season 10 with the multitalented, dynamic Marie at The Talk table.”
Commenting on becoming one of the hosts, Marie Osmond said, “It is such a joy for me to be joining The Talk in September. After guest co-hosting and appearing as a guest on the show throughout the years, I am thrilled to now call this my day job. I look forward to working with Sharon, Sheryl, Eve and Carrie Ann, who are such smart, strong, talented women whom I immensely respect. I cannot wait to share this exciting new chapter with the viewers and the CBS family.”
The Talk holds the 2pm ET/1pm PT slot on CBS’ weekday schedule. The series is executive produced by John Redmann and departing host Sara Gilbert.
