Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will co-host “TMZ Live” with Harvey Levin on Monday, Sept. 18, the celebrity news website announced.

Scaramucci, a former Wall Street financier and Fox Business Network host, will join Levin, the founder of TMZ, on set in Los Angeles.

"I'm really grateful to Harvey Levin and the entire TMZ family for this vote of confidence," Scaramucci said in the announcement.

"I'm looking forward to learning a lot and having a great time."

Levin, who recently signed with Fox News to host "Objectified," an entertainment series that focuses on interviews with public figures who tell their life stories through objects they have compiled and kept over the years, joked about Scaramucci's 10-day tenure as President Trump’s communications director.

"Anthony Scaramucci will have a shorter run on TMZ than he did as White House Communications Director," Levin says.

"But it is going to be awesome."

TMZ Live is a live-chat program in which producers and staffers discuss stories the website is covering.

Scaramucci's time as communications director was an eventful one, with then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigning in protest of his hiring. 

White House chief of staff Reince Priebus departed days later, after Scarmucci called him a "f------ paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” in an interview with New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza.
