The daily, syndicated half-hour TV show from parent corporation Meredith is based off content from the popular celebrity and lifestyle magazine. People (the Show!) will also feature content that takes from the publication’s human-interest stories including exclusive interviews, entertainment news, beauty and style and more.
“I’m thrilled to bring the People newsroom to life for viewers across the country, whether at home or on-the-go.” said Adams, who currently hosts NFL’s Emmy-nominated Good Morning Football.

Jackson, along with correspondents Jeremy Parsons and Sandra Vergara, will bring a fresh, smart, fun, and dynamic take to the genre and will do a fantastic job representing the iconic People brand,” said showrunner and executive producer Rob Silverstein.
