Actor moving to weekday edition as solo emcee

Mario Lopez will be the host of “Extra” when the syndicated entertainment skein begins its new season on Sept. 15.

A former weekend co-host, Lopez will jump to the weekday edition as solo emcee. He replaces current co-hosts Dayna Devon, who will become a correspondent, and Mark McGrath, who leaves the show to return to a music career.
