"Stations enthusiastically embraced our and Jeff's vision for re-creating the classic talk show," Nogawski said. "Jeff developed his listening and storytelling skills on the prime-time hit 'Survivor,' and his hosting appeal was cemented on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' and 'Larry King Live.' Jeff has the ingredients to become an instant asset to stations and provide a strong lead in to their newscasts."

"I'm fascinated with people," Probst said. "And I love adventure. I can't wait to bring these two worlds together in daytime, and the added bonus is I get to continue with 'Survivor' in primetime."
