‘The Jennifer Hudson Show’ is coming to FOX TV stations this fall
Jennifer Hudson lends her soulful, Grammy-winning voice to become the new voice of daytime conversations.
Her new show, “The Jennifer Hudson Show,” is coming to FOX television stations across the country this fall.
Many know her from her days on “American Idol” when she was a third-season runner-up. But she began to build her career and strengthen her voice singing in a small church in Chicago where, week after week, she got the congregation up and running.
And she hopes her talk show will do the same.
“People from all over the world have been part of my journey since the beginning – 20 years ago – and I am so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all,” said she declared. .
“As the syndication industry continues to undergo dramatic change, we need strong players to reinvigorate talk shows and Jennifer Hudson is just that,” said Frank Cicha, Executive Vice President of Programming. at FOX Television Stations.
The 40-year-old’s career is certainly inspiring. She’s a two-time Grammy winner, Oscar-winning actress, Emmy-winning producer, best-selling author, and most recently, she’s been Named Artist of the Year at the 53rd Annual NAACP Image Awards. But his personal life was also a source of inspiration.
In 2008, she mother, brother and nephew were murdered. The estranged husband of his sister has since been sentenced for the shooting deaths and Hudson has put in place an educational charity in honor of his nephew. She also shared in a memoir her weight struggles and how she lost 80 pounds.
“I’ve been through so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and pretty much everything else, but like my mom always told me, ‘Once that you think you’ve seen it all, live on,” Hudson said.
Hudson promised his hour-long talk show would be fun and hinted that it would “shake things up a bit.”
FOX television stations have yet to announce what time slot her show will fill, but she will join the competitive ranks of former “Idol” Kelly Clarkson’s daytime network. The end of Ellen DeGeneres’ longtime show this year also ushers in a new chapter of daytime talk television.
