Singer and actress, Keke Palmer, is close to becoming the third co-host on ABC’s daytime talk show “Strahan and Sara,” according to Page Six.
Palmer’s experience of filling in as guest host while Sara Haines was on maternity leave, allowed the audience to get a feel of what more she will bring to the show. “‘Keke has been so much fun filling in, so they decided to make her an offer,’ said the insider [quoted from Page Six]. ‘The audience knows her and she’s got great chemistry with both [hosts].”
Not only has she been a host on this show, but she has also made history by being the youngest talk show host on Just Keke, on BET. As well as her recent guest-starred position on FOX’s Star for two seasons.
Palmer has already tackled on projects with “Strahan and Sara” and continues to take on more variety of topics to discuss. A few interviews are now up, such as a sit down with Bella Thorne, who talks about her rocky relationship with her mother.

I think we are all constantly on that journey of understanding what our boundary lines are and how to truly express our voice in this world. I grew up in the industry and that journey can sometimes make you feel trapped in a role that doesn’t allow you to evolve. Sometimes ppl want you to stay as an idea when you are expanding as an individual. And though our journeys are our own, I feel we all go through transformations and through them the mission is the same: To define and redefine our voice ❤️. Much love you to baybee @bellathorne and make sure you guys check out her new book!!!!!!! “Life of A Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray”, proud of you. @strahanandsara #StrahanAndSara

ABC stated the show’s views haven’t been high, but by including Palmer, they’re hoping she would attract more younger viewers.
The question whether the show’s name will change to include Palmer’s name is still in question. Finalized details may be released by the end of this week, according to Page Six.
