Two new ladies are joining the conversation on The Talk.

Elaine Welteroth and Amanda Kloots have signed on as new co-hosts, the CBS daytime talk show announced Tuesday.

Viewers may recognize Welteroth as a judge on the new Project Runway. She is also editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue.

“I am beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the phenomenal women of The Talk,” Welteroth said in a statement to the media. “I look forward to learning from them and lending my perspective to conversations that build bridges in this singular time in our world.”

Kloots is a former Broadway dancer and Radio City Rockette. Her husband, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, died in July from COVID-19. Kloots documented his battle with the virus on social media, raising awareness about the disease.

“I am thrilled and honored to join this incredible cast and crew. From the very first time I guest co-hosted on The Talk, I knew I was among a very special group of people,” she said in a statement. “I look forward to starting off the new year with honest and thought-provoking discussions, mixed with plenty of fun and laughter, too.”

The new additions to The Talk come after Marie Osmond exited the series in September after one season to spend more time with her family and to work on future projects for ViacomCBS.

Meanwhile, rapper and actress Eve announced last month that she would be giving up her seat after three seasons, to focus on “expanding” her family.

Welteroth and Kloots will make their official debut as co-hosts on Jan. 4.
