The Talk has found its replacement co-hosts for season 11— both of which are certainly exciting names! As People shares, the popular daytime talk show revealed on Tuesday that Amanda Kloots and Elaine Welteroth are set to join its dynamic panel of women next year, and both Kloots and Welteroth have shared their excitement for the gig!
Kloots shares she's "thrilled and honored" to join The Talk
Kloots has appeared on The Talk several times recently in a guest co-host capacity. While she became known for sharing her husband Nick Cordero's battle with coronavirus— which the actor tragically lost in July— the entrepreneur, fitness instructor, and author has used her platform to encourage people to stay active and positive.
"I am thrilled and honored to join this incredible cast and crew," Kloots shared in a statement. "From the very first time I guest co-hosted on The Talk, I knew I was among a very special group of people. "I look forward to starting off the new year with honest and thought-provoking discussions, mixed with plenty of fun and laughter too."
Welteroth says The Talk women make her "feel right at home"
Welteroth has also appeared on The Talk as a guest host, and has some impressive credentials to her name with the work she's done at Teen Vogue! As People mentions, back in 2016, the writer became the youngest editor-in-chief of a Condé Nast publication. And recently, she joined Project Runway as a judge! "I am beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the phenomenal women of The Talk," Welteroth said in her own statement.
"They have each made me feel right at home alongside them on this incredible platform that cultivates connection, kindness and understanding when we all need it most," she continued. "I look forward to learning from them and lending my perspective to conversations that build bridges in this singular time in our world." The president of CBS Entertainment, Kelly Kahl, also shared a few words about the show's newest additions!
"Amanda and Elaine are accomplished and relatable women, whose talents and personality stood out during their multiple guest appearances this fall," Kahl explained. "They bring a fresh new dimension to the show and we're very excited to have them join the panel. These five hosts together present a compelling mix of personalities and opinions that will continue to elevate the series and lead The Talk well into the future."
Kloots and Welteroth will be rounding out The Talk's panel as they replace Eve and Marie Osmond, who stepped down this year. Congratulations to both of these incredible women, and we're excited to see what they bring to The Talk when the show returns in early 2021!
