Steve Harvey has been hosting his daytime Talk Show in Chicago for over four years. That is about to change. Harvey is ending his Chicago-based daytime talk show in May and is lauching a new show in Los Angeles in September 2017. Currently, the "Steve Harvey" show is taped at NBC Tower and co-produced by NBC Universal and Endemol Shine North America. An NBC spokeswoman confirmed the news on Friday that the show is ending. This will affect about 100 employees who work for the talk show in Chicago, They have already been notified about the relocation.

Chicago-based show

The "Steve Harvey" show debuted in September 2012.

It was a welcomed change for Chicago after Oprah Winfrey ended her long-running syndicated daytime talk show a year earlier. She moved to Los Angeles to start her OWN cable network. Harvey's show in Chicago will end when the season ends in May. When the new season begins in September, Harvey's talk show will be in a new location. It is not unusual for talk shows to change locations. Phil Donahue moved his talk show from Dayton to Chicago in 1974 and from Chicago to New York in 1985.

Los Angeles-based show

The Los Angeles-based show will be co-produced by Steve Harvey and IMG. Harvey will have an ownership stake in the new show that hasn't been named yet. The unnamed show will be distributed by NBC Universal and aired on all NBC-owned stations, including WMAQ-Ch.5 in Chicago where the current show is broadcast.

Most of the shows hosted by the 59-year-old comedian, radio, and television personality bear his name. Perhaps the show should keep the same name as the current popular show.

The format of the new show will be quite different. It will have more Celebrities as guests. That's one of the major reasons Harvey is moving to Los Angeles.

The Chicago show mostly has ordinary people as guests and very few celebrities. That is about to change. As of now, Harvey has to commute from his Chicago home to Los Angeles where he hosts "Little Big Shots," "Family Feud" and other television shows. It will be very convenient when all his shows are in the same location.
