At long last, we know who will be the face of this year's Daytime Emmys. Sheryl Underwood, host of award-winning show The Talk and winner of a Daytime Emmy Award herself, announced live on her show that she would be emceeing the 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.
This will be Underwood's fifth time hosting the show and the 15th time CBS has broadcast the Daytime Emmy Awards, which is more than any other network. However, this is the first time she's ever hosted the ceremony by herself.
Underwood, a talented actress and zesty comedienne, is more than up to the challenge. In addition to having hosted The Talk for a decade, she has made appearances on The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. She also hosts her own podcast and a radio show.
The Daytime Emmy Awards were created in 1974 to reward extraordinary achievement in daytime television programming. Any shows broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00 PM are eligible to compete, as are certain other categories such as children's television shows. This year features the most competitive field yet, with over 3,100 submissions being judged by a crack team of professionals from all over the television industry.
The award ceremony will be broadcast Friday, June 25th on CBS and available to stream on Paramount+ and the CBS app. Featured talent will be appearing either in person or remotely, but there will be no in-person audience due to COVID-19. Additional winners will be announced simultaneously on Twitter, so stay tuned to @DaytimeEmmys for updates.
