CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

If you were watching the FOX19 Morning News Xtra on Thursday, you may have noticed we switched out Frank Marzullo for... Montel Williams?

Yep, Montel Williams joined Tracey Johnson to co-host the entire show. You may remember him as host of the long-running 'The Montel Williams Show'.

He's also been very active with the non-profit MS Foundation, which he founded after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999. He's served as spokesperson for the Partnership for Prescription Assistance.

Most recently he started 'Living Well with Montel', an online community offering wellness products, healthy lifestyle tips, advise from healthcare experts and more.

Montel was passing through Cincinnati to promote his website and planning to stop by our studio for an interview. His agent mentioned he could host the show if we wanted him to, and of course, we said yes!

He discussed some more personal topics, such as his daughter's diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma cancer at the young age of 24, as well as his nationwide tour to promote the wellness website.

And as it turns out, Montel is awesome and hilarious! He even helped Katy with her weather forecast.

It's safe to say we all enjoyed his visit here at FOX19.
