Report: BET's Terrence J Joins The E! Network

Published: Saturday 11th Aug 2012 by TGJ

After spending the last seven years hosting BET‘s ‘106&Park‘, Terrence J shocked the world when he announced he was to depart the show later on this year, alongside co-host Rocsi Diaz.

Now, after weeks of speculation, it has been reported that he had signed onto present on the E! Network.

According to AlwaysAList.Com, the actor is gearing up to serve as a replacement for long time host Ryan Seacrest, whose ‘American Idol‘ commitments will see him spend less time on the network- which houses seasoned reporter Giuliana Rancic.

They explain:

A source close to the network tells that “they’re very supportive of him pursuing his acting career.”

Ironically, Terrence J’s departure from BET mirrors that of former “106 & Park” host A.J. Calloway.  When Calloway left the show in 2005 he also joined a news magazine show, “Extra!” where he continues to work as a correspondent.

No word on when Terrence J officially starts on “E! News.”  Back in May, he guest-hosted with Rancic and speculation began online that he was in talks with the network.
