BET (Black Entertainment Television) is attempting to make history this month by making 20 year-old Keke Palmer the youngest talk show host in history. I am always excited for young people to make positive strides in their lives and it’s no secret that Keke Palmer has truly been grounded in her career as an actress and most recently she has launched a singing career and now she will be a talk show host. She is going to be a very busy young lady as she has a movie “Animal” that has yet to be released with a song on the soundtrack of the same title. The talk show content is scheduled to be geared towards young people. With an air date scheduled for June 30, 2014, we shall see how this plays out. The young diva is determined to be simply “Just Keke”. Although I’m not much of a TV fan but I’ll give it the once over when it airs.
Best of luck to Keke Palmer!!
Read the story as reported by Huffington Post:
Keke Palmer is set to make talk show history this summer with the debut of her new daily BET show tentatively titled, “The Keke Palmer Project.”
According to a press release provided by BET and Telepictures, the 20-year-old actress will target millennial viewers as she cover an array of topics and issues ranging from social, pop culture, fashion sex, and more. Which makes her the youngest talk show host in television history.
In addition to etching her name into the record books, the four-week test run in July is also produced by Judge Greg Mathis who was instrumental in establishing the relationship between Palmer and Telepictures.
Palmer’s passion for discussing various issues via social media is one of the many reasons why she has decided to venture into daytime television. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she noted in the press release. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively!”
“I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”
