Terrence Jenkins joins Giuliana Rancic as Anchors of E! News, the global leader in pop culture information, reaching more young adults than any other entertainment news program. Starting November 12th, Jenkins will bring his own unique perspective to the network’s highly rated news broadcast, E! President of Network Strategy and E! News Cyndi McClellan announced today. Until recently the co-host of BET’s long-running 106 & Park video countdown show, Jenkins will also contribute in-depth personality profiles and original reporting pieces.

“Terrence Jenkins is a talented and well-connected television personality who will bring an original sensibility to our news programs,” Cyndi McClellan said. “His energy and engaging personality, coupled with E! News Lead Anchor Giuliana Rancic’s proven experience, should help cement E! News’ stature as the leading source for news across pop culture, delivered to an engaged audience on all platforms.”

A graduate of North Carolina A &T State University where he pledged Omega Psi Phi, Jenkins hoped to continue the career in broadcasting that he’s started on the radio in college. Jenkins, who had used the name Terrence J previously, has quickly become a popular figure for young audiences, with key roles in such recent theatrical features as Think Like a Man, Burlesque and Sparkle, along with prominent TV roles on BET’s 106 & Park and The Game.

“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,” Jenkins said. “I’ve had a great career so far, and it’s all been building toward this. And then getting to work with great people like Giuliana and the entire E! News team just makes this seem like an even more perfect opportunity.”

    I’m so happy for Terrence J! I’m glad that he wasn’t put in a box like all the other 106 and Park hosts. I’m also super happy that E! News didn’t white wash him for this job! It looks as if they are letting him be himself, which is amazing.

    I’m happy for Terrence. I think that’s great that he’s maturing in his career. You know 106 & Park in my (opinion) was for the younger audience and moving on to E News allows him to reach the mature audience 20 yrs of age and up…… Congratulations Terrence Jenkins, i wish you well.

No thanks
