Marc Lamont Hill will join Amber Rose as new personalities tapped by VH1 to bring them into the late-night talk show market. Unlike Rose, however, Hill’s show will not focus around sex. Instead, VH1 Live promises to deliver a pop culture spin on entertainment news and gossip.

Per The Hollywood Reporter:

“The deal keeps Hill in the Viacom fold after serving as a BET News host. The VH1 show will see the Ivy League educated host infuse his opinions and wit with what’s billed as a “raw street savvy ” approach to the subject matter. The audience and social media will also play a role in the conversation, with Hill poised to be joined by some of VH1’s biggest stars to get exclusive, behind-the-scenes buzz on the cable network’s top-rated shows.”

The series debuts Sunday, July 17 at 10 p.m. I think this will be really good, so I’ll be tuning in!
