Tracey Edmonds Snags Hosting Gig With ‘Extra’
Mama’s got a new job!
Just minutes ago, it was announced that Tracey Edmonds snagged a new gig with “Extra.” Apparently the 47-year-old beauty will be moving from behind the scenes and preparing for her close up, as she has actually been cast as a host for the long-running show.
“I am thrilled to join ‘Extra’ and am so excited about being a part of such a dynamic and progressive entertainment show,” Tracy expressed. “I look forward to working with Mario, Charissa, Lisa G and her whole team. ‘Extra’ already set the bar high, but I look forward to contributing new ideas and exploring new horizons on the show as I enter the next chapter of my career.”
According to a recent press release, both Tracey and Charissa Thompson have signed multi-year deals to co-host the series alongside Mario Lopez.
“Tracey Edmonds is one of the most accomplished television forces in Hollywood,” said Lisa Gregorisch-Dempsey, Senior Executive Producer of ‘Extra.’ “She is already a star with A-list relationships. Charissa Thompson is one of the quickest, sharpest and best interviewers on sports TV and was born to juggle the demands of fast-paced television.
“From the moment I put Tracey and Charissa on stage with Mario, their chemistry was off the charts. They are generous with each other, they complement Mario, and together they will be an unstoppable team that will take ‘Extra’ into the future.”
Tracey is slated to make her hosting debut on September 8. We see you Tracey. Get that money, girl!
