'Extra' Loses On-Air Personality Who Has Been a Fixture on the Show Deadline
The syndicated entertainment newsmagazine “Extra” has lost one of its most prominent on-air personalities. Deadline.com reports that Maria Menounos is headed out after signing a deal with E! to host her own one-hour entertainment newsmagazine show.
Menounos, who has been a host on "Extra" since 2011, will also appear on the roundtable show “Live from E!” and on E! specials. The network has also signed a first-look deal with her production company, Underman/Omegagirl Productions.
The new E! show, “Untold with Maria Menounos,” will look at topics ranging from Gen Y royals to reality stars, the story notes. Each episode will include three segments focusing on individual topics, with additional segments such as a pop-culture minute.
