This fall will see another changing of the guards for the host of Family Feud.

After four seasons hosting the show, John O’Hurley will be leaving to focus on his role in the musical Chicago‘s traveling company.

FremantleMedia North America, the producer of the game show, has chosen Steve Harvey to be the new host when the new season starts up this fall.

Steve Harvey will be the fourth former TV star in a row to host Family Feud:

Louie Anderson (Life with Louie & The Louie Show) hosted from 1999-2002.

Richard Karn (Home Improvement) hosted from 2002-2006

John O’Hurley (Seinfeld) hosted from 2006-2010

Some of Steve Harvey’s starring roles on TV are The Steve Harvey Show, Me and the Boys, and host of Steve Harvey’s Big Time Challange.  He currently also has a syndicated radio show.
