Two more players have joined "The Meredith Vieira Show." NBC announced that E Street Band (of Bruce Springsteen fame) musician Everett Bradley has joined the syndicated daytime talk show as the band leader, and Jon Harris will be the announcer.
Harris and Vieira have a longtime connection, as he has been a friend of her and her husband Richard Cohen and is a frequent collaborator with the former
host. He most recently served as Hillshire Brands Company's chief communications officer.
"Everett and Jon are like brothers to me and will be a great presence as we encourage guests and viewers to be brave and be their true selves," Vieira says in a statement. "They both bring an authentic kindness and a great sense of humor to our friendship that I am eager to share with our audience."
"The Meredith Vieira Show" will premiere Sept. 8, 2014.
