Singh will stand alone as the only woman hosting a daily late-night show on the network.
When asked what the show will be like Singh joked, "Kind of like my YouTube channel, but just now I have more than three staff members".
The show will launch in September.
Appearing on Thursday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Singh made the announcement official, telling the studio audience, who gave her a standing ovation, "I do have an announcement and that is that ya girl is getting her own NBC late-night show!" "A huge shoutout to all of the women who have been before me and are now in the space because I couldn't have done it without them paving the path", Singh said.
NBC announced in February that Daly was stepping away from his late-night program Last Call with Carson Daly after a 17-year run to concentrate on his duties as host of the Orange Room on Today, as host and producer on The Voice and to spend more time with his family. "I'm thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild".
Lilly Singh is changing that ratio with her upcoming NBC show, 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh'. I'm numb. I can't even process. "This has been SO long in the making and I'm so happy I can finally share this with you". She published a self-help book in 2017, How To Be a Bawse, which earned her a No. 1 spot on The New York Times' best-seller list in the "Business" category.
YouTube star Lilly Singh is coming to late night tv!
"Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time".
She has since branched out into music, writing and acting, with small roles in Ice Age: Collision Course and HBO's Fahrenheit 451. "But now I'm fully embracing them as my superpowers", she wrote.
