YouTuber Lily Singh will make history as the host of a late night talk show on NBC.
Singh, 30, will replace Carson Daly as host on “Last Call with Carson Daly.” The show will be rebranded as “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” and is expected to debut in September.
This will make Singh the only woman, bisexual and Indian-Canadian to host her own late night talk show on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.
She made the official announcement on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” telling the crowd “To clarify, it’s not Jimmy’s spot.”
Singh explained that the show will be similar to her YouTube channel, which has 10 million subscribers, and will include comedy sketches and interviews.
During her “Tonight Show” appearance Fallon welcomed her to the NBC late night crew with “Late Night” host Seth Meyers and the trio toasted to her accomplishment.
Singh came out as bisexual in February in a simple tweet.
✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x ❤️🧡💛💚💙— Lilly Singh (@IISuperwomanII) February 25, 2019
