The long-running syndicated game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” has a new host. Disney/ABC announced that Chris Harrison, the longtime host of “The Bachelor,” will get the job.
Harrison will take over the job from Terry Crews, who is leaving after a short run as host to concentrate on other TV and film projects.
The show was hosted by Meredith Vieira from 2002-2013, followed by a short run with Cedric the Entertainer as host.
Harrison has hosted the ABC reality franchise “The Bachelor” since 2002, and will continue with that role even after he takes over hosting duties on “Millionaire.” He is set to begin the job this fall, when the show launches its 14th season.
