“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 on SNL and Late Night, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys,” Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC Entertainment said in a statement on Thursday. “Plus, with Don’s vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we’ll be in great hands.”
In addition to Late Night, Meyers’ previous hosting duties include the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards, as well as the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner.
