Jeff Neira

Yesterday it was announced that The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be coming to a close after 19 seasons. On May 11, staff and crew of the talk show were informed of Degeneres’ decision and, on today’s episode, the comedian will publicly discuss her decision to end the show with longtime friend Oprah Winfrey. In speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, DeGeneres explained, “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged, and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.” 

As disappointed as some may be to learn the show is coming to an end in 2022, there’s no shortage of Black girl curated, hosted, and produced shows to watch across all networks. Whether you’re a woman who likes her news with her coffee or you’re a youngster who prefers to get your news from YouTube and Instagram live, these ladies have something for everyone in the talk show realm. From Soledad O’Brien’s new BET show, Disrupt & Dismantle, deconstructing and posing questions about structural racism to Wendy Williams’ self-titled gossip show filled with hot topics, these Black women have your attention and the ratings and renewed seasons to prove it.

So, if you’re looking to fill the void Degeneres is leaving, flip the channel to the next station and get a glimpse of some Black women hosts who are killing it on the talk show circuit right now.
