Emmanuel Acho to replace Chris Harrison in ‘Bachelor’ special; ‘The Post’ announces next year’s editor-in-chief

Today is Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

After Chris Harrison stepped away from The Bachelor following widespread criticism for perpetuating racism, The Bachelor has selected a new host for the “After the Final Rose” episode: Emmanuel Acho.

Acho is a former NFL linebacker and best-selling author who rose to fame with the creation of his online talk show, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” which serves to start dialogue around racial ignorance with several different subtopics. The show launched in June 2020 and has more than 80 million views to date.

The “After the Final Rose” special will air March 15 after the show’s finale. Acho will sit down with Bachelor lead Matt James and the final three women in the contest: Bri, Michelle and Rachael. 

“It’s both an honor and a privilege to be hosting ‘After the Final Rose,’” Acho said in a statement. “This is an incredibly pivotal episode on one of the most storied shows in television history.”
