*You’ve seen her everywhere – on “Star Search” in 2004 where she reached the finals, as a correspondent for D.L. Hughley’s short-lived CNN 2008 program, and starring in her own Comedy Central special in 2010.

Beginning Sept. 15, Detroit-born comedian Loni Love begins her highest-profile gig yet as a host on daytime talk show “The Real.” She’ll sit alongside fellow hosts Tamera Mowry-Housley, Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai.

The fall launch follows a successful four-week test run last summer on seven Fox owned-and-operated stations. Love, a one-time engineer at Xerox, says she learned a lot from those test broadcasts that will be applied to her return this fall.

“I’ve been studying myself because I always want to improve,” Love told EURweb exclusively. “Being a former engineer, you learn to always go back, study yourself, see what you could’ve done differently, see what you could’ve said. So there’s a lot of changes that’s going to happen for me on the show. That’s why I want to hurry up and get started.”
