After nearly 30 years hosting Entertainment Tonight, Mary Hart will leave the show and Nancy O'Dell has been named as her replacement.
"I remember watching Entertainment Tonight when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show someday," said O'Dell. "I am honored to be the one chosen to fill a TV legend's seat and I hope I can do her proud!"
Hart knows she is leaving it in good hands!
"Leaving this job was not an easy decision, but knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier. Nancy is a talented and respected entertainment correspondent. We have spent many years working on opposite sides of the celebrity battlefield and I know the show will flourish with Nancy as co-anchor."
Nancy does know what she's doing! She has served as co-anchor of Access Hollywood for 13 years and will join ET as a special correspondent in January. O'Dell will fill in for Hart when she steps down next year.
Onwards and upwards!
