AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR host Akbar Gbajabiamila has joined THE TALK as new host. The season 12 co-host list includes Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, and Jerry O’Connell.

“It’s a new day in daytime for season 12 of THE TALK, and we are thrilled to welcome Akbar to the family. His engaging personality, openness and quick wit really impressed us when he appeared as a guest co-host last season,” said Heather Gray, executive producer and showrunner of THE TALK.

“Akbar’s candor and humor come with ease and are great additions to the conversation. Also, his relatability as a husband and father creates a special connection with the viewers that is invaluable,” added Kristin Matthews, executive producer and showrunner.

“It is an absolute honor to be joining THE TALK as a host! I am so excited for this new generation of such a long-standing establishment. To be a part of this diverse group is truly a dream and a new statement for THE TALK. In a world as divided as ours, I look forward to showing up as my fun and authentic self every day and advocating for conversation over confrontation,” said Gbajabiamila.

In addition to AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR, Gbajabiamila is an author and a former NFL player.
