Steve Harvey might be losing the only hosting gig he as left. According to a source in the production team, Steve may be getting pushed out of his hosting gig at Family Feud.
Steve had previously 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 flying around that he’s being pushed out of Family Feud.
The member of production at Family Feud revealed that “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 further revealed 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 source said.
But if Steve is let go from the show, the source revealed 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.
