In 2013, it was announced that Harbert would oversee NBC Late Night.
is an American comedian, actress, writer, television host, and producer.
She hosted the late-night talk show Chelsea Lately on the E!
network from 2007 to 2014, and released a documentary series, Chelsea Does, on Netflix in January 2016. Other shows on which Handler has appeared include Weekends at the D.
After graduating magna cum laude with a degree in Broadcasting and Film from the Boston University School of Communications, Harbert returned to New York, where he worked at ABC.
In a 2005 article in Advertising Age, Harbert wrote, “I started poring over the ratings in Nielsen 'Pocket Pieces' when I was 9 years old.
Two years later, I learned there were jobs at networks that picked shows and decided where they went on the schedule.
From that moment, I wanted one of those jobs.” Harbert began his broadcasting career while a student at Boston University’s college radio station, WTBU, where he worked alongside his friend, Howard Stern.
In February 2015, Handler said she envisioned a show more serious than Chelsea Lately: "I would like a healthy mix of everything that goes on around the world, mixed with interesting stuff in our country.
The well-roundedness of 60 Minutes but faster, quicker, cooler." Handler has written five books that have made the New York Times Best Seller List, four of which have reached number one.
