According to McGraw, he will be focusing on future primetime programming endeavors and will soon be announcing a “strategic prime-time partnership.”

He said,

“I am compelled to engage with a broader audience because I have grave concerns for the American family and I am determined to help restore a clarity of purpose as well as our core values.”

According to reports, the project is expected to launch next year.

Dr. Phil McGraw’s career catapulted after appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show numerous times throughout the late 90s and early 2000s. His own daytime talk show was launched in 2002.
