Premiere Radio Network syndicated radio morning host Steve Harvey will have another job this fall… as the new host of Debmar-Mercury’s Family Feud.
Harvey, who’s morning show is heard daily by more than seven million listeners in more than 64 markets nationwide, and is one of “The Original Kings of Comedy,” is perhaps best known to audiences from his time starring in The Steve Harvey Show, which aired on The WB from 1996 to 2002.
“With his talent, authenticity and innate ability to connect with audiences from all walks of life, Steve exemplifies the spirit and appeal of Family Feud,” said Fremantle President Cecile Frot-Coutaz in a statement. Fremantle produces the long-running Family Feud, while Debmar-Mercury distributes the show.
Harvey is also a best selling author, having published his first book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man one year ago. The book is inspired by his syndicated radio show’s popular “Strawberry Letter” segment, in which Harvey dishes out relationship advice.
Harvey replaces John O’Hurley, who began his run on the daily game show in 2006.
