The former host of "The X Factor" is close to a deal to become the new co-host of "Entertainment Tonight," reports the New York Post’s Page Six. Steve Jones is set to replace Mark Steines, the story says.
Jones has been talking with the show since he was let go from "The X Factor" by creator Simon Cowell, and has been filling in on the program since March, the story says. Steines will be leaving the show after 17 years. Jones will co-host with Nancy O’Dell.
Representatives for "ET" said only, "Nothing has been confirmed," according to the piece.
