Seth Meyers is the host of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards. NBC made the announcement today that the new Late Night host will host the award show, which airs on August 25th on the network. Meyers previously hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards and the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner.
NBC president of late night and alternative programming Paul Telegdy said in the announcement, "Seth's expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at SNL, as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera on SNL and Late Night, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys. Plus, with Don's vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we'll be in great hands."
