CHICAGO — First lady Michelle Obama will appear on Steve Harvey's new daytime talk show.

The show's producers say she will tape her appearance on Thursday. It's scheduled for broadcast on Oct. 3. "Steve Harvey" is taped before an audience at NBC's studios in Obama's hometown of Chicago.

The 55-year-old veteran comic's show debuted earlier this month.

Harvey said in a statement that he's honored to have Mrs. Obama as a guest.

The first lady's appearance on Harvey's program will be her latest on the daytime talk-show circuit as the presidential election enters its final weeks.

Earlier this week, Mrs. Obama joined her husband, President Barack Obama, for a pre-taped, joint interview on ABC's "The View."
