Fans of Chris Harrison will be happy to hear that he’s made a big career move following his departure from ABC. The former “Bachelor” franchise host announced that he’s starting his very own podcast which will premiere in January 2023.
Drawing on his time as host of the franchise, Harrison’s podcast is called “The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever,” which is a call back to the times that he called various seasons of the popular dating show the “most dramatic ever.”
