After just one year on the air, Kellie Pickler and co-host Ben Aaron earned their spot as presenters at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards over the weekend.
Pickler celebrated the invitation in full by dressing to the nines in her bright yellow gown, while Aaron donned a traditional tuxedo like many of the men on the red carpet. Taking the stage as presenters, the pair looked absolutely stunning as they read off the name of the winner for their certain category.
The two were nominated within the Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host category for their work on Pickler & Ben, alongside nominees like Larry King, Dr. Oz, Kit Hoover, Steve Harvey and Natalie Morales. Harvey came out victorious for that trophy, but Pickler and Aaron still felt honored to be a part of such an acclaimed group after only one year of broadcasts.
The series also received nods in the Outstanding Hairstyling category for Debbie Dover Hall’s work on the show, and the Outstanding Directing in a Talk Show/Entertainment News/Morning Program for directors Joe Terry and Wesley MacMillan finding nomination honors.
It’s been a great time for Pickler and Aaron, as they just found out that Pickler & Ben will return for a second season. Producer Faith Hill, as well as the hosts, got very excited to hear the news of continuing on for another round.
Pickler & Ben airs daily in specific markets, and will be back for season two in the coming months.
