Stepping up in the world of celebrity pop culture, Nick Lachey is slated to replace Carrie Keagan as the host of Vh1's "Big Morning Buzz Live."

A source told Us Weekly that the 40-year-old will take the reins as soon as the show returns in the spring, saying, "He'll be a great fit," adding that, "He's happy to be on board."

The source has also stated that the "I Can't Hate You Anymore" singer intends to rent out a new place in New York City, where the show takes place, although he and wife Vanessa are said to have wanted to raise their son Camden in Cincinnati, OH.

In related news, Carrie Keagen released a statement to Deadline on December 30th, saying, "I've had the most wonderful time and experience hosting Buzz, and I am very grateful to have worked with the stellar production team behind the show, as well as Tom Calderone and Lee Rolontz at VH1, who were incredible champions and supporters." Good luck to her!
