The show started in the year 2000 and was led by Yamashita Tomohisa, Kazama Shunsuke and Yokoyama Yu. Even though Takizawa Hideaki weren't a regular he contributed a lot to the show, like new segments and even one of the earlier opening titles. Later Yokoyama Yu graduated and then 4Tops became the main hosts. In april 2003 they changed location to NHK hall where it is being held until today. The feeling of the show changed from a studio setting to more of a concert. They also changed from airing 30 minutes weekly to 50 minutes bi-monthly. After the debut of NEWS in 2003, they together with KAT-TUN became the main hosts. Later in 2006 Koyama Keiichiro hosted the show alone for the first time. After trying out different co-hosts he was later accompanied by Nakamaru Yuichi. The KoyaMaru combi hosted together for 5 years before handing it over to Hey!Say!JUMP in 2011. Every episode Hey!Say!JUMP rotated 3 hosts amongst the group, though with most regular Arioka Daiki. In April 2014, Kawai Fumito (A.B.C-Z) and Kiriyama Akito (Johnny's West) became the new and current hosts.
