LOS ANGELES - November 10, 2011 - CBS Television Distribution has sold the new syndicated first-run talk show JEFF PROBST to stations in more than 55% of the country for a fall 2012 launch, it was announced today by John Nogawski, President of CTD.

"Stations enthusiastically embraced our and Jeff's vision for re-creating the classic talk show," Nogawski said. "Jeff developed his listening and storytelling skills on the prime-time hit 'Survivor,' and his hosting appeal was cemented on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' and 'Larry King Live.' Jeff has the ingredients to become an instant asset to stations and provide a strong lead in to their newscasts."

"I'm fascinated with people," Probst said. "And I love adventure. I can't wait to bring these two worlds together in daytime, and the added bonus is I get to continue with 'Survivor' in primetime."

"Jeff is one of the most likeable and relatable personalities in prime-time television. We're thrilled to be working with Jeff to bring a quality, classic talk show to daytime viewers next year," said Aaron Meyerson, President of Programming and Development, CTD. "Jeff loves to talk to real people and find out what's important in their lives and delve into the common experiences we all share."
