HELLO NEW HOST!!!  NBC has named Arnold Schwarzenegger as the new host of “Celebrity Apprentice.” The former California governor will take over board room duties from Donald Trump, who left the show — or was fired, depending on who you ask — when he started his run for President.

“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise,” NBC’s Paul Telegdy said in a statement. “Arnold Schwarzenegger is the epitome of a global brand in entertainment and business, and his accomplishments in the political arena speak for themselves.”

Schwarzenegger was a guest on “The Apprentice” in 2007 when he was till governor. After retiring from politics, the actor recently rebooted his entertainment career, starring in “The Expendables” series and several other films. This will be his first shot fronting a reality show.

“It was Arnold’s personal passion for the format that Mark Burnett and Donald Trump built over the last decade, as well as his fresh take on how to take it to new heights for today’s audiences, that made him the man to hire” Telegdy said.

NBC cut all ties with Trump in June after Trump made comments about Mexican immigrants and NBC canceled its airing of the Miss USA pageant.
