O'Dell will serve as special host of the 62nd annual Emmy Awards Coverage for CBS National News on Sunday (Aug. 29). She'll be greeting TV's brightest stars on the red carpet and conducting one-on-one interviews with nominees and winners on the big awards night. Following Emmy night, O'Dell will be featured Monday on CBS's " The Early Show" to give viewers the full "inside Emmys" report.
"I can't wait to see all my celebrity pals! I've only taken a break from the red carpet for a few months, but it will feel great to do my thing again for such a great entity," Nancy tells Zap2it.

In addition to O'Dell's CBS Emmy gig, she's keeping busy hosting shows on a broad list of other broadcast and cable networks. She will be hosting ABC's Fall TV Preview special set to air in September.
