‘ET’ recruits ‘TRL’ co-host

Minnillo to juggle both shows

Vanessa Minnillo, co-host of MTV’s “Total Request Live,” has been named a Gotham correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight.”

Minnillo will report on film, television, music and fashion for the syndie newsmag produced by Paramount Domestic Television. She will continue to co-host MTV’s musicvideo countdown, a gig she’s held since 2003.

In February, Minnillo co-hosted CBS’ Super Bowl pre-show “The Greatest Commercials: Super Bowl vs. the World.” Before joining MTV, she hosted U.K. crossover hit “Top of the Pops” for the WB.

Minnillo was named Miss Teen USA in 1998 and has since served as a judge and backstage correspondent for the pageant.
