Twentieth Television has found its co-anchors for “Good Day Live,” naming Debbie Matenopoulos and Arthel Neville to join Steve Edwards on the nationally syndicated strip.

The duo will join the program Monday, Aug. 30, with current co-host Dorothy Lucey continuing to co-host “Good Day L.A.”

“Debbie Matenopoulos and Arthel Neville are two highly talented hosts who’ll bring an entirely new dynamic to ‘Good Day Live,’ while ‘Good Day L.A.’s’ on-set chemistry will continue with Steve, Dorothy and Jillian [Barberie],” said Bob Cook, president and chief operating officer of Twentieth Television. “For the national ‘Good Day Live’ audience, we’ve decided to evolve the program so that it grows nationally with the addition of Arthel and Debbie.”

Ms. Neville previously held anchor duties on “Extra” and CNN’s daily news talk program “TalkBack Live.” She also co-hosted the nationally syndicated daily strip talk show “Arthel & Fred.”

Ms. Matenopoulos recently hosted “Entertainment News” and co-hosted “The Screening Room” for the TV Guide Channel, but may be best known for her run on “The View” between 1997 and 1999.
