'Glee' star Jane Lynch chosen to host Emmy Awards

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Get out the megaphone: "Glee" star Jane Lynch will be hosting the Emmy Awards.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Thursday that Lynch will host "The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards" honoring excellence in prime-time TV. The ceremony will be held at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre and will air Sept. 18 on Fox.

Lynch stars as a megaphone-wielding cheerleading coach who bullies students on the hit Fox series about a high school glee club.

The actress says she's "tickled pink" to be chosen as Emmy host. The awards show will be executive produced by Mark Burnett of "Survivor" and "Celebrity Apprentice" fame.

The 50-year-old Lynch has won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance as Sue Sylvester on "Glee."
