The show will be produced by NBCUniversal Syndication Studios and Stamford Media Center Productions. According to the report, Karamo has been acquired by leading station groups, including Nexstar, Weigel, Sinclair, Tegna, Sunbeam, Hearst, Scripps, and others, so it’s slated to air all across the country this fall.

Brown’s show is likely to fill the empty slot left by Maury, which is ending after a 30-year run. Brown was a frequent guest host on Maury Povitch’s program. 

“Karamo has done an incredible job guest hosting Maury many times over the past two seasons. Karamo is a true fan of the genre who will bring that passion, along with his unique skill set and life experiences to guide his guests through life’s dramatic crossroads and build a lasting connection with the daytime audience,” Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios & E! News, told Deadline

“Karamo is the next generation of compelling relationship-based talk, with a truly special host and we are so happy to offer this show to our station partners across the country.”

Brown’s daily, hour-long show — which will be filmed in front of a live studio audience — will explore a range of topics set to include raising children, handling complex family dynamics, and race issues. 

“Growing up, hosting a daytime talk show seemed unrealistic and unattainable, but it was my dream. I used to run home from school as a kid to watch this genre’s icons Sally, Donahue and Maury,” Brown said. “My biggest goal is to help, and connect with, people from all walks of life.”

“As a black, gay man of first-generation immigrants, opportunities for my goals seemed impossible,” he continued, “so I want to thank everyone involved for believing in me and trusting me to explore all the highs and lows of life and celebrate with their audiences. We are all taking this journey together, so let’s start talking and growing.”
