NBC names Seth Meyers as Primetime Emmys host

Facebook/Late Night with Seth Meyers

NBC can't stop giving gigs to Seth Meyers. The network has tapped the newly installed Late Night host to present this year's Primetime Emmy awards.

"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, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys," said Paul Telegdy, NBC's president of late-night programming. Meyers is no stranger to hosting gigs, as he has previously hosted the ESPY Awards and the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner.

The show will air live from Los Angeles on both coasts on August 25.
