In preparation for the expansion of its “E! News Daily” program from 30 minutes to an hour next Monday, E! Entertainment TV has signed Gina St. John as a co-anchor with Steve Kmetko, who has anchored the show since 1993.
St. John most recently hosted “CNet Central,” a computer-themed show that runs on USA Network and the Sci-Fi Channel. She has also served as a radio personality, entertainment reporter and music VJ.
Adding St. John and doubling the daily entertainment newscast’s length serve as part of a new E! strategy to become more news-oriented. The network recently doubled its news staff and added a New York bureau.
