"I'm fascinated with human nature and thrilled that this show will allow me the opportunity to connect with real people and explore their stories on a personal level," Probst said in a statement.
"As I continue with 'Survivor,' I am excited to extend my relationship with CBS with this new adventure in the world of daytime."
The three-time Emmy winner has signed to host 'Survivor' for Seasons 23 and 24, keeping the competition series on CBS through 2012, the year Probst's talk show debuts.
The 'Survivor' host has talk show experience. He has filled in for Regis Philbin on 'Live! With Regis and Kelly' on numerous occasions and was even rumored to be up for a permanent spot opposite Kelly Ripa when Philbin retires.
Look for Probst's new series to cover a wide range of topics, including families that find themselves in extreme situations and topical news stories.
