Seth Meyers to host Emmy Awards telecast
“Late Night” host, Evanston native, Northwestern grad and iO alum Seth Meyers has been chosen to host the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast. The show will air on Aug. 25 on NBC.
“Seth’s expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at ‘SNL,’ as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment.
Since 2000, every time NBC has broadcast the Emmys, the host was a “Late Night” host: Conan O’Brien in 2002 and 2006, Jimmy Fallon in 2010 and now Meyers in 2014.
