LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - TV Guide Network said on Wednesday that reality television stars Carrie Ann Inaba and Chris Harrison will anchor its signature "red carpet" shows covering the Emmys, Grammys and Oscars.

Inaba is a judge on the hit ABC network show "Dancing with the Stars" and Harrison hosts dating program "The Bachelor," also on ABC.

The pair will anchor red carpet awards show coverage for the network starting with the Primetime Emmy Awards on September 20, and leading up to the Academy Awards on March 7, 2010. In between, the two will cover the Golden Globe Awards, the Screen Actor's Guild Awards and the Grammy Awards.

Inaba and Harrison are replacing actress Lisa Rinna and singer Joey Fatone as hosts of TV Guide's red carpet shows.
