Meyers has been the rumored choice for Emmy host for months, and in October he told The Wrap, "I hope Jimmy (Fallon) keeps doing it, so I don't have to." Whoops! (Fallon hosted in 2010, after taking over as the host of Late Night.)
NBC has also announced that Don Mischer will serve as executive producer of the live broadcast.
This year's Emmy Awards will air on Monday, August 25.
