E! has found a permanent replacement for Ryan Seacrest on E! News. Terrence Jenkins, until recently the co-host of BET’s 106 & Park video countdown show, will join Giuliana Rancic as co-anchor of E! News starting Nov. 12. Jenkins, who had previously used the name Terrence J, will also work on personality profiles and will report for the news program. Jenkins’ hire comes on the heels of the appointment of Jason Kennedy and Catt Sadler as co-anchors of E! News Weekend. Terrence announced his departure from his 7 year stint on 106 and Park recently. He has transitioned into acting on the hit show The Game, Sparkle and Think Like A Man.
“Having Giuliana and Terrence for the weeknight program, and Jason and Catt for weekends, gives us a quartet of skilled, popular broadcast journalists and will give viewers a fun, fresh look at pop culture news,” said E! President of Network Strategy and E! News Cyndi McClellan.
Congrats Terrance! Well deserved!
