WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- Jesse Palmer is taking on a new challenge beginning Sept. 18 when he becomes host of the newest entertainment newsmagazine on television - "Daily Mail TV."

The former "Good Morning America" correspondent is excited to cover a broad scope of topics ranging from breaking news to showbiz, technology, science, crime and sports.

"I think it’s going to be addictive. I think DailyMail.com is exactly that. I know it certainly is for me. It’s always been kind of the first place I’ve gone to get the news," Palmer said. "I think with this TV show because of its content and the different topics we can discuss, the different guests we’re going to have on discussing those topics and the fact that a lot of what we do is going to be breaking news, I think is going to make it very, very interesting."

Palmer, a former NFL quarterback, will be juggling his new hosting gig with another job he's held since 2007 - college football analyst at ESPN. Because of the balancing act, Palmer has a very busy schedule on his hands.

- At 7 a.m., Palmer wakes up and works out

- 8:30 a.m., Palmer is on the road to shoot Daily Mail TV

- 9 a.m., he's working on the TV show all the way up to mid-afternoon at 3 p.m.

- 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., the analyst is studying college football to prep for his weekend duties on ESPN

- Thursday and Friday night after shooting Daily Mail TV, he travels to Bristol, Connecticut to serve as a studio analyst for college football games

- On Saturday, Palmer is in Bristol all day covering college football live until the last show ends at 3 a.m.

But despite the various duties on his plate, Palmer is excited to display his unique qualities.

"With Daily Mail TV being the host often times its presenting stories its being the interviewer," Palmer said. "We interview a lot of people on the show there’s a lot of questions you ask. You get an opportunity to also show a lot of personality."

The show will not steer away from hot button issues that are trending such as Colin Kaepernick's attempt to find a new job in the National Football League. Palmer was a backup quarterback with the New York Giants for four seasons and says that Kaepernick has the talent to play.

“I’m a fan of Colin Kaepernick on the field. I know he certainly has the talent to be on an NFL roster. I think the question mark is whether or not they risk or want the distraction in their own locker room. I think that’s kind of the internal battle," Palmer said.

Daily Mail TV's new host was also the first professional athlete to star on "The Bachelor" and had some advice for Arie Luyendyk Jr., who was named as the new star of the show next season.

"Just enjoy it. Really kind of stay in the moment and really just be true to (yourself).”

Palmer hopes to get the opportunity to interview President Donald Trump after his presidency is over for a tell-all.

If there was one question Palmer could ask the commander-in-chief now - “How many bedrooms does his home in Palm Beach really have?”

Daily Mail TV debuts September 18.
