LOS ANGELES - Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian reality TV family, is getting her own daytime TV talk show later this year, US broadcast network Fox said on Monday.

Jenner's show, which will be called Kris, will begin a test run in the summer on Fox affiliates in Los Angeles, New York and other cities.

If expanded nationwide, the show could catapult Jenner, 57, from manager to lifestyle expert alongside daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe who have starred on reality series on US channel E!.

The daily one-hour show will feature celebrity guests and address lifestyle trends, Fox said. Jenner has previously been a guest host on CBS daytime talk show The Talk.

"This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true! I can't wait for this new adventure to begin," Jenner said in a statement.

Jenner, who was married to the late attorney and businessman Robert Kardashian, is now married to Olympic decathlon gold medallist Bruce Jenner, 63.

Fox is a unit of News Corp.
