From the Chicago Tribune:
The new show will be co-produced by Harvey and IMG, the New York-based media company whose affiliate, WME, represents the comedian/TV host. Harvey will have an ownership stake in the as-yet-unnamed show, which will be distributed by NBC Universal and carried on all NBC-owned stations, including WMAQ-Ch.5 in Chicago. Sources said the new show will be more celebrity-driven, one of the primary reasons Harvey is leaving Chicago for Los Angeles. News of the move was first reported by media blogger Robert Feder.
The Steve Harvey Show first premiered in 2012 and Harvey currently hosts Family Feud and Little Big Shots.
