For those wondering what’s next for Terrence J as his 7-year run on BET's "106 & Park" comes to an end can wonder no more. The soon-to-be former countdown host was just named the permanent replacement for Ryan Seacrest over at E! News.
Terrence J, now using his full name Terrence Jenkins, will be starring alongside Giuliana Rancic as co-anchor of E! News beginning November 12. This decision comes as a result of previous anchor Ryan Seacrest’ career pulling him in several directions, leaving very little time for him uphold his hosting duties for the network.
“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.
Back in May, both current "106 and Park" hosts Terrence J and Rocsi confirmed that they would be leaving the show this approaching fall. In an emotional farewell announcement Jenkins expressed, “The first day I cracked the mic on 106, I was staying on a cot in a basement." The duo then promised fans a huge farewell show stating, “We're going to be leaving with a bang."
