Mark your calendars, Meredith Vieira fans. The Irvington resident’s new talk show will premiere on Sept. 8.
Musician Everett Bradley, who plays with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, will be the show’s band leader. And Harris, a media spokesperson and communications professional, will join the show as Meredith’s announcer. Not coincidentally, they are both good friends with Meredith and her husband Richard Cohen.
“Everett and Jon are like brothers to me and will be a great presence as we encourage guests and viewers to be brave and be their true selves,” the former ‘Today Show’ host said. “They both bring an authentic kindness and a great sense of humor to our friendship that I am eager to share with our audience.”
Having good friends around will also help Meredith achieve the home-like atmosphere she is going for with the show. The set will resemble her Irvington home, complete with her actual furniture and family photos.
