A few years ago, Keke Palmer was the fourth highest paid child star on television, and now she’s making even more waves in the industry.

It has been announced that the 20-year-old media maven recently linked up with BET and Telepictures for a new show. And this time, she won’t be acting, reports

In the new series, tentatively titled The Keke Palmer Project, Keke will be following in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey, Tyra Banks, and Queen Latifah with her very own talk show aimed at young adults.

On her desire to be a talk show host,  she revealed in a statement:

"I come from a very small, poor town just outside of the Chicago area and I know what it’s like to dream and accomplish some of your goals, but I would never want to do a show where I am preaching to anyone because I do not like being preached at.  I want to learn right along with my audience and every show will be a collaborative effort.  I am so thankful to Debra Lee and everyone at the BET Network for providing me with this unique opportunity and platform."

When the show premieres in July, Keke will become the youngest talk show host in history. The title is currently held by Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she began her show, reports the site. -
