Yvette Nicole Brown To Host AMC’s ‘The Talking Dead’
Yvette Nicole Brown has snagged a new hosting gig. Brown, known for her role in Community will take over as the host of AMC’s Talking Dead. The network announced the news stating,
Yvette Nicole Brown will step in as an interim guest host of ‘The Walking Dead Season 9 Preview Special’ on August 5 and ‘Talking Dead’ when it returns following the premiere of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ on August 12, as we work to complete our assessment related to Chris Hardwick.
Hardwick stepped down from his role on the show after his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra, claimed he abused her during their relationship and later blackballed her from the industry after they broke up. Hardwick has denied the allegations.
In addition to hosting The Talking Dead, Brown will also serve as the moderator for the San Diego Comic-Con panels for both “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” Prior to her new AMC gig, Brown frequently appeared on Talking Dead and is a huge fan of The Walking Dead.
Congrats to her!
