NBC's president of alternative and late night programming, Paul Telegdy, substantiated the rumors in a statement Monday, writing that the network is excited to have the funny ladies on board for the January 13 ceremonies.
"Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year's festivities is a major coup," said Telegdy. "Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on SNL to their successful co-starring roles in Baby Mama."
Fey, who is currently working on the seventh and final season of the multiple Golden Globe winning NBC comedy 30 Rock, and Poehler, who stars in the network's own Parks and Recreation, will take over for Ricky Gervais who has hosted the award show for the previous three years.
