LOS ANGELES, April 25 (UPI) -- Seth Meyers can add yet another new gig to his growing resume after being tapped to host the 2014 Primetime Emmys.

The new Late Night host has a little experience presiding over award ceremonies. He hosted the 2010 and 2011 ESPY Awards on ESPN.

"Seth's expertise and ease in front of a live audience during his time at SNL, as well as his comedic brilliance both as a writer and in front of the camera, makes him the perfect choice to host the Emmys," said Paul Telegdy, president of late night and alternative programming at NBC Entertainment. "Plus, with Don's vast experience at putting these type of big productions together, we'll be in great hands."

The 66th annual Primetime Emmy Awards show is set to air at 8 p.m. EST Aug. 25 on NBC.
