Today is national talk show host day. One of my (not so secret) dreams has been to host my own show, although the chances of this are slim to none, you never know where God may take the direction of my life. In honor of this unique national day, here are my top five favorite talk show hosts:

1.)   Cristina Ferrare – Cristina was a long time co-host of Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. The model and cook book author has a beautiful soul, genuine heart for others, and a warm personality. I had the pleasure of meeting Ferrare a couple times while visiting the set of Home & Family, and also once at our local Whole Foods, and can say that she is truly the woman she has displayed on TV. Unfortunately, Ferrare was let go from Home & Family this year (which I have not watched since), but continues to live stream via Facebook with Maria Shriver, and also is working actively to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s.
2.)   Leah Remini – Remini was a host on CBS’ The Talk before losing her job due to on-set drama, in which I personally do not feel that she was in the wrong. Leah is a tough chick who tells it like it is and this is a trait I really admire in a talk show host. She never once hid her feelings on a topic and recently exposed her nightmare experience with Scientology in her tell all, Troublemaker.
3.)   Oprah Winfrey – Winfrey is the mother of day time talk shows. She hosted her show for many years and built an empire to her name. Winfrey pathed a path for young women all over the world to never take no as an answer. She was fired from her first television position, but bounced back as one of the leading ladies of television.
4.)   Jimmy Kimmel – Although he does not report hard hitting news, I feel Kimmel has brought a new light to night time tv. His pieces on celebrities reading mean tweets, lie witness news, and pedestrian questions are a good laugh that I feel our nation needs when the news is constantly reporting negativity.
5.) Carson Daly – From TRL to The Today Show, Daly has always been relatable, professional, and fun to watch. He has a great rapport with those he interviews, while creating a real connection with his audience. Watching his progression on television through the years has been fun and although not a talk show, I absolutely love him as a host of The Voice.

Who is your favorite talk show host?
