Oklahoma's award-winning actress-singer Kristin Chenoweth will be the first co-host on the new season of "Anderson Live" launching Sept. 10.
Most recently, the Broken Arrow native starred in "GCB" on ABC and garnered a recurring role as a political reporter on "The Good Wife" on CBS. She appears in the first episode Sept. 30 but further filming of her role was halted after she was injured on the set of the primetime drama.
She joins the list of Anderson Cooper's co-hosts which includes Goldie Hawn, Kelly Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, Howie Mandel, Erin Andrews, D.L. Hughley and Kellie Pickler.
Guests on the talk show, which will air at 3 p.m. weekdays on channel 8, includes Richard Gere, Beyonce, Jake Gyllenhaal, Claire Danes, Meg Ryan, Ben Affleck, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Kerry Washington, Kelsey Grammer, Carol Burnett and Stephen Colbert.
Chenoweth co-hosted twice with Cooper last season and, in an appearance last May, she took Starbucks to task for the placement of the perforation on its brown sugar packets.
