I’m not too sure about Maru’s skills as a host, he looks more fit to be a comedian but let’s see.
It was announced that Kanjani8‘s Maruyama Ryuhei will serve as MC for TBS new show, “Saturday Plus!“(Sata de purasu), that will air every Saturday morning starting this April. The said show will be replacing “Shittoko!” that has been on air since 2003.
The main theme of the show are “money” and “health”. The group will also give information on self defense, gossips, and travel where a travel gourmet will flood the streets to deliver information that one should really know.
This is Maruyama’s first time to host a news show and he will be joined by Kosakai Kazuki (59) and Kojima Ruriko (21) to show and cover differences between three generations.
“Saturday Plus!” will start this April 4th at 08:00 (JST) on TBS and MBS.
