“The Steve Harvey Morning Show” will continue to air on more than 100 radio stations through the end of 2026 under a contract renewal agreement between the radio and TV host and syndicator Premiere Networks. Harvey’s new deal will also see him continue to work with Premiere on a variety of projects, including developing and creating new programming and promotions, community and charitable endeavors and events.
“I’m happy to continue my fruitful partnership with Premiere Networks and host ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’ well into the future,” Harvey said in a statement. “Entering into this agreement further underscores my commitment to serving the community and the people… I’m excited to continue giving people much-needed smiles and hard laughs in these uncertain times.”
Harvey launched his radio show in September 2000 and joined Premiere’s national lineup in 2005. Working with co-hosts Shirley Strawberry, Nephew Tommy, Carla Ferrell, Junior and J. Anthony Brown, Harvey was honored with the NAB Marconi Award for “Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year” in 2013 and 2015. He was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2014.
Along with his national radio show, Harvey hosts the TV game shows “Family Feud” and “Celebrity Family Feud.” “Steve on Watch” is currently in its third season on Facebook Watch. ABC recently ordered “Judge Steve Harvey,” described as a “courtroom comedy series” in which Harvey will rule on real-life disputes, which is set to premiere in the first quarter of 2022.
“Steve is a multiplatform star and one of the most talented entertainers in the world. He has the ability to entertain and engage audiences across any and every platform with fun, humor and heart,” Premiere Networks president Julie Talbott remarked.
The agreement was negotiated by Talbott and by Steve Harvey Global’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Legal Officer, Brandon R. Williams.
