Steve Harvey is returning to the show that made him a household name! The Smooth R&B 105.7 morning dude is set to host a weekly version of “Showtime at the Apollo” when it returns to TV later this year.
The show was given the green light following two successful “Apollo” specials that aired in December and January.
“We all had such a blast on the two specials that aired earlier this season, that we thought it really deserved being a weekly event” Harvey said. “But our mission is a little different this time around. Instead of just putting on a great show, we’re going to do that and find the next great comic and the next big music star. That’s what the Apollo is all about. My roots are on that stage, and I can’t wait to be there every week, looking for great talent. Who said you can’t go back home again?”
Harvey hosted the original “Showtime at the Apollo” from 1993 to 2000.
