NMB48 to become TV hosts
As announced on March 18, NMB48 will become hosts for the TV show Docking!!!. Docking!!! is a local TV show in the Kansai area, focusing among other corners on entertainment news and it is hosted by Kendo Kobayashi, Jinnai Tomonori, and Tamura Kenji. All members of the newly created Team N will appear in the show and this is also their first time as TV hosts.
In order to incorporate the group into the show title, the show will be renamed as Docking48. The show will report about the latest events and also about personal information about NMB48 members. NMB48 will start to appear sometime in April but due to the earthquake and tsunami the actual starting date is still undecided.
Hosts: Kendo Kobayashi, Jinnai Tomonori, Tamura Kenji, NMB48
Channel: Kansai Terebi
Timing: 24:35 ~ 25:35 (Wednesdays 0:35 ~ 1:35 am)

NMB48 got a lot of exposure since the start of their stage show. They were engaged for promotion events, appeared in a CM and just recently became regulars on a TV show for the first time. So it was only a matter of time until they became hosts themselves. I am really looking forward to the show and am especially curious about what kind of ‘personal information’ we will get about the members.
