LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Actor/comedian Arsenio Hall will host a new syndicated late-night talk show that will air on KTLA beginning fall of 2013.

The new show is set to launch on 17 Tribune stations, including in the three largest markets on KTLA, Los Angeles, at 11 p.m.; WPIX, New York, at 11 p.m.; and WGN, Chicago, at 10 p.m.

Hall, who recently won the latest edition of NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice," is best known for hosting the Emmy Award-winning "The Arsenio Hall Show," a late-night syndicated talk show produced by Paramount Domestic Television (now CTD), which ran from 1989 to 1994.

The show's place in pop culture history was cemented in June 1992 when then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton appeared on the show and played "Heartbreak Hotel" on the saxophone.

Arsenio had a substantial following with his previous late-night show, and that same 18-34 audience is now right in the middle of the late-night core audience of 35-54.

"We're excited to welcome Arsenio back to the family and partnering on his new, late-night syndicated talk show," John Nogawski, President of CTD, said.

"Years ago, he transcended time periods and attracted a cross-over audience while bringing a fresh perspective to late night. That same need in the market exists today as when we originally launched. We are looking forward to the same success with Arsenio's seasoned expertise and appeal in this genre."

Hall began his career in stand-up comedy, and soon caught the eye of television executives who tapped him for guest appearances on shows such as "Solid Gold" and "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson," which led to his hosting Fox's "The Late Show" in 1997.

In addition to his stand-up and hosting work, Hall established a career as an actor in movies such as "Coming to America" and TV shows such as the CBS dramedy "Martial Law"
