KEVIN FRAZIER LOUIS AGUIRRE CBS

Entertainment journalists Kevin Frazier and Louis Aguirre will be taking up new posts in September, when Frazier joins “Entertainment Tonight” and Aguire takes his co-anchor seat on “The Insider.”

Frazier joins “Entertainment Tonight” from “The Insider,” where he was co-anchor and managing editor of the newsmagazine after a previous run on “Entertainment Tonight” as a correspondent and weekend anchor.  Frazier has also served as host for “Game Changers with Kevin Frazier,” highlighting professional athletes using their public presence to make a difference, and has been lead anchor for “College Football” on FX and Fox Sports Net.

Aguirre arrives at “Insider” after a long run at Fox affiliate WSVN in Miami, where he has been an entertainment reporter and co-anchor of “Deco Drive” since 2003.  Aguirre’s resume includes a career start at Telemundo and ABC affiliate WPLG in South Florida, followed by time as a correspondent for “Extra,” “A Current Affair” and as a co-host for “Fox and Friends” prior to his “Deco Drive” run.

“Kevin lives and breathes entertainment news; he is the ultimate professional and has a phenomenal relationship with Nancy,” said Brad Bessey, executive producer of “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider.” “When searching for a new co-anchor, we realized Kev, who gives 110% everyday, is the perfect fit and are thrilled to welcome him home. And, we’re just as excited to have Louis join ‘The Insider.’ He is a dynamic broadcaster with a strong point of view, which will be key as he and Thea offer perspective on the hottest trending entertainment news and pop culture topics of the day.”

“With Nancy and Kevin and Thea and Louis and the rest of our ensemble we have two impressive teams with decades of entertainment news experience combined to lead ‘ET’ and ‘The Insider’ into the future,” said Hilary Esttey McLoughlin, president of creative affairs for CBS Television Distribution. “Both of these shows will continue to bring a distinctive point of view to the pop culture stories that viewers are talking about each day. We can’t wait for viewers to tune in and see the results this fall.”

Both programs are produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution. Bessey serves as executive producer with Linda Fuller on “Entertainment Tonight” and with Monique Chenault on “The Insider.”
