Steve Harvey may be on the verge of losing his very last job. According to a person close to production, Steve Harvey may be getting pushed out of his hosting gig at Family Feud as early as this year
Steve recently lost two other hosting gigs. His daytime talk show, Steve, was canceled and he was replaced as host of Little Big Shots. Now rumors are swirling that he's being pushed out of Family Feud.
The member of production at Family Feud explained to MTO News, "Steve's contract with Family Feud is up, and he's very expensive." The insider explained that production is exploring cutting Steve out - and his hefty salary - and replace him with someone cheaper.
The insider told MTO news that Steve's up for his third 5 year contract (he signed his first in 2010 and second in 2015) in 2020. And while no final decision has been made - Steve's future with Family Feud is unclear.
"If Steve wants to stay, he'll probably have to take a big pay cut," The insider claims.
But if Steve is let go from the show, MTO News' insider feels that the top replacement for Steve, is Good Morning America show host Michael Strahan.
On Sunday, PEOPLE confirmed that Harvey won’t be hosting the kids’ talent show Little Big Shots when the series returns to NBC. Harvey, who hosted the show for its first three seasons, will be replaced by Melissa McCarthy.
“Melissa’s just an incredible performer and incredible comedian,” NBC’s co-chairman of entertainment Paul Telegdy said in a statement, adding that the actress, 48, “will bring a completely fresh perspective to it.”
