Marc Lamont Hill Lands Late-Night Talk Show

Morehouse professor Marc Lamont Hill is used to sharing his educated opinion on TV. Now, the BET News host and CNN commentator who’s well-versed in everything from discussing race and police brutality, to pop culture and sports is getting his very own late-night talk show on VH1.

Hill will host VH1 Live, a weekly show that will cover the news through a hip, pop culture lens. While this will be his first late-night show, Hill’s former gig at the HuffPost similarly synthesized hot topics with his intelligent wit.

Hill joins an increasingly crowded late-night landscape and will have to jockey for position with Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and AMC’s Geeking Out. 

VH1 Live premieres Sunday, July 17 at 10pm.
