Steph McGovern is to present a new daily live show on Channel 4.
Starting in Spring 2020, The Steph Show will be broadcast live from Leeds, the home of Channel 4’s new national HQ.
The new programme will be a mix of entertainment, lifestyle and light current affairs as Steph meets a variety of guests from the worlds of showbiz, politics and beyond.
Steph will be joined by a different, well-known co-host each week for a lively look at the topics of the day, as well as consumer affairs, fun features and lots of interaction with the viewers – all filmed in front of a live audience.
“I’m really chuffed to be creating my own live show with Channel 4 in Leeds,” said Steph.
“It’s going to be nerve-wracking, but there’s nothing I love more than finding out what makes people tick, whether it’s a famous face or someone we haven’t met yet who has a cracking story to tell.
“This is a dream come true for me and I can’t wait to get started next year. Just a small matter of having a baby first!”
The Steph Show is to be produced by Expectation in partnership with West Yorkshire-based Can Can Productions.
Ian Katz, Director of Programmes, Channel 4, added: “Steph is one of the warmest, smartest and funniest talents on British TV and I’m thrilled she’s joining Channel 4.
“She’ll deliver a massive dose of energy and fun to our schedules and kickstart the Channel 4 day.”
Steph, who joined BBC Breakfast in 2010, is currently on maternity leave.
