Kelly Clarkson has a few irons in the fire, so to speak.

On Tuesday, NBCUniversal announced the pop singer and judge on “The Voice” will get her own self-titled day-time talk show this fall. The news comes as Clarkson is prepping for her Meaning of Life tour, which kicks off Thursday and stops Friday night at Fresno’s Save Mart Center.

The tour also features pop-country crossover act Kelsea Ballerini and last season’s winner of “The Voice,” 15-year-old Brynn Cartelli.

Fans can expect Clarkson’s hits (“Since U Been Gone,” obviously) plus a cover or two. She’ll also be filming installments for her Minute + Glass of Wine web series.

Details: 8 p.m. Friday. Save Mart Center. $29-$99. 800-745-3000, www.ticketmaster.com
