The syndicated Hollywood newsmagazine “Entertainment Tonight” is parting ways with one of its on-air fixtures. Deadline.com reports that the show is losing Rocsi Diaz, who worked for two years as the show’s weekend co-host and a daily correspondent.
“As both Rocsi and ‘ET’ have grown and evolved over the years, she has elected to pursue hosting opportunities that are available to her at the start of next year,” a representative for the show said. Diaz will leave the program in January.
The piece adds, “According to sources, the evolution involves a stronger emphasis on news content at ‘ET’; that might not be a great fit for Diaz, who rose to fame as co-host of BET’s hit music show ‘106 & Park.’ There is no replacement for Diaz, though ‘ET’ is bringing in CNN entertainment correspondent Nischelle Turner as a new correspondent next month.”
