Ellen DeGeneres' talk show is coming to an end after 19 years
Hollywood, May 13: Hollywood comedienne Ellen DeGeneres will end her Emmy-winning daytime talk show after 19 years. She told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview published on Wednesday.
Entertainment publication Variety said DeGeneres will discuss the decision with guest Oprah Winfrey at Thursday's event.
“When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore,” DeGeneres said in an interview.
"The Ellen DeGeneres Show" debuted in 2003 and has won more than 60 Emmy Awards.
Last year, three top producers walked out of the show and DeGeneres apologised after reports of toxic work environment surfaced. She promised “a new chapter”.
Before moving to a new show on HBO Max, Warnermedia reported on May 5 that late night talk show host Conan O'Brien will host his long-running nighttime TBS "Conan" talk show on June 24 for the last time.
O'Brien's HBO Max show will move away from a traditional talk show format, WarnerMedia said.
