"ZIP!" the new show Yamaguchi will be co-hosting

TOKIO’s Tatsuya Yamaguchi (39) has been named as one of the three main personalities for Nihon TV’s upcoming morning show “ZIP!” starting in April, reports Mainichi Shimbun and Sports Hochi.

 

The Johnny’s star will be joined by EXILE’s MAKIDAI (35) and comedian Taizo Harada (40).  The three will take turns every day in hosting the show along with two Nihon TV announcers.

 

“ZIP!” will replace the long-running “Zoom in!! SUPER” morning show, and TV producers hope it will bring a new, “happy and fun morning to Japan”.

 

TV producers have said Yamaguchi was chosen because he has been able to make the transition from a pop star idol to a man, and can therefore bring something new to the show.

 

All three have been familiar faces on prime time television in Japan, but to become the new faces of morning television, each of them will now have to come into the TV studio by 4:30am for the show’s 5:50am start.
