An Ohio native, Amanda Kloots brings her infectious and inspirational attitude to everything that she does. She serves as host of THE TALK, CBS’ Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show highlighting current events, pop culture, family, celebrity and trending topics of the day through the eyes of four hosts, alongside Akbar Gbajabiamila, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.


In addition to hosting THE TALK, Kloots starred in and executive produced the holiday film FIT FOR CHRISTMAS which aired on CBS in December 2022. This marked Kloots’ acting debut in a leading role. In 2021, Kloots returned to her dancing roots and competed in the 30th season of “Dancing with the Stars.”


A former Broadway dancer and Radio City Rockette, Kloots performed on a variety of stage, film and TV productions for over 17 years. In 2016, Kloots decided to focus full time on her AK! Fitness brand – her signature classes feature jump rope, dance cardio and full body training.


Kloots’ first memoir and New York Times bestseller Live Your Life, co-written with her sister, was released in June 2021. The book tells of her 95-day struggle and love story with her late husband, Nick Cordero. Her second book, Tell Me Your Dreams, came out in April 2023. The children’s book is a bedtime picture story inspired by Kloots’ own bedtime rituals with her son, Elvis.


Currently, Kloots resides in Los Angeles with her 4-year-old son, Elvis. Her birthday is March 19. Follow her on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @amandakloots.
