Deadline reports:

Piece by piece, the clearances for The Kelly Clarkson Show have come in. Today, NBC Universal said the syndicated talk show set to launch in the fall is set for 99% of the country.

The hour-long talker has been sold to 200-plus stations, including the top 165 markets, ahead of its September 9 kickoff, said Tracie Wilson, EVP Creative Affairs at NBC Universal Domestic TV Distribution.

Clarkson has been a hitmaker since winning the first season of American Idol. She’s a three-time Grammy winner who has racked up 11 top 10 singles and three No. 1s since her 2002 debut.
