LONI LOVE RETURNS FOR SEASON 2 OF “THE REAL” SEPTEMBER 14
“BEING LONI LOVE” DOCUMENTARY TO AIR ON CENTRIC SEPTEMBER 26
LONI TAPPED TO HOST ELLEN’S NEW GAMESHOW “HEAD’S UP”
Fall is in the air and it feels like Love, Loni Love that is. She will be keeping it fun and above all, real!
Comedienne, actress, tv host and author, Loni Love is in demand and loving it as she gets set to return as co-host for season 2 of her hit daytime talker “The Real” beginning September 14. The nationally syndicated show which airs on Fox stations (with a rebroadcast in primetime on cable network BET) was touted by the New York Post as “fun, funny, involved in life, outrageous by nature, warm and, most of all, real.” Along with her talk show duties, Loni will host the upcoming Ellen DeGeneres produced Heads Up game show. Based on the popular app where contestants have to give clues to another player so they can guess which subject is ‘on their head’, the show will debut on the HLN network in January, 2016.
In the ten plus years since she began doing comedy full time, Loni has found her niche on The Real (“It's like a younger, intoxicated version of The View” said Jezebel), as well as regular appearances spinning tunes as the house DJ on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Loni also currently co-hosts the Café Mocha radio show cafemocharadio.com with rapper MC Lyte. They’ve interviewed President Obama and the First Lady as well as superstars like John Legend, Toni Braxton among many others. Café Mocha is the only nationally syndicated show of its kind that was created exclusively BY and FOR women of color. You can catch the nationally syndicated show on over 40 stations across the country including SiriusXM Channel 141. Additionally, Loni has been a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and E! Along with her work on television, Loni just wrapped production on director Garry Marshall’s next film Mother’s Day and can be seen in several movies, including the successful Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 opposite Kevin James, Soul Plane with Kevin Hart and the Bad Ass franchise with Danny Glover and Danny Trejo.
Later this month, Loni will be the subject of the documentary “Being Loni Love.” “Being Loni Love” traces Loni’s life story from her early days as a latchkey daughter growing up in Detroit’s Brewster-Douglas housing projects to national stand up comedienne, tv and movie star. “ I was honored when the “Being” producers wanted to hear my story. I want to share my life story to inspire all women that they can become and achieve whatever they want.” Says Loni.
“Being Loni Love” is set to begin airing September 26 on the Centric channel.
You can also catch Loni out on the road this fall with her stand-up comedy show.
