Conan O'Brien is returning to host this year's Emmy broadcast, says Variety. The NBC Late Night host is set to emcee the 58th annual Primetime Emmy Awards. He was the Emmy host four years ago, the last time NBC broadcast the event.
The difference this time: Late Night executive producer Jeff Ross will be one of the executive producers of this year's Emmy telecast. He'll partner with Ken Ehrlich, the veteran Grammy producer who last year replaced long-time Emmy producer Don Mischer.
NBC will air this year's Emmys, which is set for Sunday, Aug. 27 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Ross has been with O'Brien's Late Night show since it started. O'Brien will replace Jay Leno as host of The Tonight show in 2009.
