I am late on this story, but big congrats to Terrence J becoming the new co host on E! That is a VERY big deal. He played his position well. Check below for all my late glory….
After announcing his departure from BET’s 106 and Park back in May, he has now confirmed that he will be sliding into Ryan Seacrest former spot as the new co-host of E! News. His new gig at the anchor desk alongside Giuliana Rancic will begin on November 12.
According to E!’s President of Network Strategy, Terrence J’s resume and connections were an attractive look for the network:
“Terrence Jenkins is a talented and well-connected television personality who will bring an original sensibility to our news programs. Coupled with lead anchor Giuliana Rancic’s proven experience, [Jenkins’ arrival] should help cement ‘E! News” stature as the leading source for news across pop culture.
Although, Ryan Seacrest will remain managing editor of E! News, he left his role at the anchor desk back in January due to his busy schedule which includes American Idol, executive producing numerous reality shows, and his daily radio morning show.
On his new role, Terrence says:
“I’ve always had a passion for the wide spectrum of pop culture that E! News covers so well; I can’t wait to get started. I’ve had a great career so far, and it’s all been building toward this.”
… and, uh, what is Rosci doing? Oh, Eddie Murphy.
