Congratulations to Nischelle Turner who has been named co-host of Entertainment Tonight, making her the first Black woman to anchor the program in its 41-season history.
“Make no mistake about it: I believe and have always believed that I was the best person for the job, but it was never lost on me that it was also bigger than just me,” she said. “I would be representing an undeserved group of people who are finally getting a moment in the spotlight — and a well-deserved moment.”
Turner will co-host the show with Kevin Frazier making it the first time that ET will be led by two Black hosts.
“There was always a thought in the back of my head, ‘Is the audience in America ready for two Black hosts up there together?’ and the answer that America gave us was ‘Yes,’ Turner said.
