Ellen DeGeneres to Receive People's Choice Humanitarian Award, Talk Show Renewed Through 2020!
It has been a big news day for Ellen DeGeneres already!
It was just announced that the 57-year-old talk show host will be receiving the fourth annual People’s Choice Award for Favorite Humanitarian at this Wednesday’s show.
“I am so honored to be receiving the People’s Choice Humanitarian Award. I think it sums me up perfectly as I am both a human and an itarian,” Ellen said in a statement.
Ellen has another reason to be celebrating as her talk show was just renewed through 2020 by NBC-owned stations. Her show has been the top-rated daytime talk show among women for the past four years since Oprah Winfrey‘s run ended.
“For more than a decade, Ellen has anchored the daytime lineups of the NBC-owned stations, offering our viewers a great afternoon show, delivering a strong lead in for our early evening newscasts and helping to launch new hits,” said Valari Staab, president of NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations (via Variety).
