‘Entertainment Tonight’ Names Cameron Mathison Weekend Co-Anchor & Correspondent

Entertainment Tonight” has brought on soap star Cameron Mathison to their talent team.

Mathison will serve as a full-time correspondent and weekend co-anchor for the entertainment newsmagazine, Variety has learned exclusively. He will also work as a fill-in anchor for the show.

The actor and host — best known for his role as Ryan Lavery on “All My Children,” on which he starred from 1998 until the show ended in 2011 — worked as a guest correspondent on “ET” in 2014 when he hosted the Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet coverage.

“Cameron is hard working, charismatic, comfortable on set, on the red carpets and in intimate celebrity one-on-ones,” exec producer Brad Bessey announced. “He’s joined us for special assignments throughout the year, and we are thrilled that he is now a permanent member of the ‘Entertainment Tonight’ team.”

Mathison joins hosts Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier, plus correspondents Brooke Anderson and Nischelle Turner. He will begin his full-time gig later this month.

He hosted “I Wanna Be a Soap Star” on Soapnet from 2004 to 2007, and co-hosted the 35th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in 2008 with Sherri Shepherd. He competed on Season five of “Dancing With the Stars,” and is also a features correspondent for “Good Morning America.”

Entertainment Tonight” is produced and distributed by CBS Television Distribution.
