Ty Pennington is reportedly looking to head to daytime TV, according to Deadline.com.

The hyper, highlighted host may be trading in his trademark bullhorn for a talk-show sofa when his contract with ABC’s ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition‘ is up in 2012.

Pennington’s management team has been shopping the idea of a daytime talk show around to networks–including ABC–as well as cable outlets and syndication options. If they sign a deal, the potential talker could be on the air by fall 2012–just in time to join the seismic shift in daytime drama, like Rosie coming and Oprah going.

The popular TV personality has hosted the tear-jerking makeover show for seven seasons.
