The show is through CBS Television Distribution. Probst will keep his job as host of Survivior, which is now entering its 23rd season.

“I’m fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level,” he said in a statement.

Probst joins several other big names to get talk shows following the departure of Oprah Winfrey from the arena. Rosie O’Donnell has a daytime talk show coming to the Oprah Winfrey Network this fall, while Katie Couric starts her talk show for ABC in fall 2012.
