NEW YORK, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- This season will reportedly be the last for the long-running, New York-based, syndicated talk show "The Montel Williams Show."

CBS Television Distribution, which produces and distributes the series, will offer 52 weeks of "Best Of Montel" episodes, featuring highlights from the show, starting in the fall, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"We have been honored to have 'Montel' as a part of our family for the past 17 years and we're very excited that 'Montel' will live on through these 'best of' episodes," said John Nogawski, president of CBS TV Distribution.

"After spending the last 17 years as a talk show host and 22 years prior in the military, I'm looking forward to the opportunities the next 17 years bring," Williams, 51, said in a statement.
