Lilly Singh, 30, will be taking Carson Daly’s spot on NBC’s late night with her own talk show titled A Little Late with Lilly Singh.
The Youtube star appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to reveal the exciting news.
“I do have an announcement,” Singh gushed. “And that is that your girl is getting her own NBC late-night show!”
The YouTube star will be the only woman to host a daily late-night show on a major broadcast network.
Singh jockingly said her show, which will premiere in September, is going to be like her YouTube channel but with more than three staff members and the sound guy won’t be an extra.
She gave a shoutout to the women who paved the path for this to happen and was humbled that as an Indian-Canadian woman, she will have her own late night show.
With more than 14 million subcribers on her channel and a New York Times bestseller under her sleeve, Singh will also serve as executive producer on A Little Late. No wonder she’s known as “IISuperwomanII” on YouTube!
Lilly Singh’s announcement comes one month after Carson Daly decided to end his Last Call show in order to focus on other projects.
