Former 106th & Park Host Lands A New Gig As News Co-Host For “E! News”
Terrence Jenkins, better known as Terrence J from BET’s “106th & Park,” has landed another gig in front of the cameras. He’s the new news co-host for E! News. Jenkins will be joining Rancic on the weekday broadcast. “I’ve always had a passion for the wide spectrum of pop culture that ‘E! News’ covers so well; I can’t wait to get started,” says Jenkins.
In addition to being a personality on-camera, Jenkins has appeared on the ‘big screen’ for the following films; Think Like a Man, Burlesque, and Sparkle. ”I’ve had a great career so far, and it’s all been building toward this. And then getting to work with great people like Giuliana and the entire ‘E! News’ team just makes this seem like an even more perfect opportunity,” he said. He and his current co-host, Rocsi Diaz, are currently scouting new persons to assume their roles for BET’s “106th & Park.”
Jenkin’s tenacious drive to achieve his dreams is what landed him the c0-host role at BET. After graduating from North Carolina A&T State University in 2004 with a degree in mass communication, Jenkins took all of his savings and flew to New York to audition for “106th & Park” in late 2005. Unhappy with his first audition, he rented a car and drove to Atlanta to audition for the show again. He landed the job after his second audition. Terrence J is the co-founder of Jenkins Entertainment Group, a company that specializes in hosting, consulting and formulating marketing plans.
