Meyers tapped to host 2014 Emmy Awards

Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES - Seth Meyers will go from late night to prime time in August: The funnyman will host this year's Emmy Awards, NBC and the Television Academy confirmed.

TV's biggest night falls on Aug. 25 at 7 p.m. on NBC, and the network certainly has proved to have a pool of worthy hosts (Amy Poehler, Tina Fey). Perhaps only a slightly less obvious choice than recently installed "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon (who hosted in 2010), the selection of Meyers comes on the heels of the "Saturday Night Live" alum being named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world for 2014.

Recently tapped to replace Fallon as "Late Night" host, Meyers previously served as a writer and performer on "SNL" - and as host of its "Weekend Update." His ease in front of a crowd extends beyond that: He hosted the ESPYs for two consecutive years and served as ringleader of the White House Correspondents dinner in 2011.
