The announcement for the program’s new host was made Monday morning.
The DailyMailTV series will bring content published on DailyMail.com, from exclusive stories and breaking news to all kinds of topics, including showbiz, politics, health & science, and technology.
Palmer was a special contributor for Good Morning America, and is also a football analyst for ESPN. He is expected to continue to work with ESPN while hosting DailyMailTV.
