"Extra" is excited to begin the fall season with new host Maria Menounos! Maria will join Mario Lopez at The Grove to give you all the latest celebrity news and talk with some of Hollywood's brightest stars.
Check out "Extra's" video of Maria as we go way back and see the TV personality blossom from a baby to ambitious reporter -- we even have footage of her first time on TV! As a warm welcome to Maria, her friends and family have sent video messages wishing her well in her new endeavor.
See what life was like before Menounos was walking the red carpet and chatting it up with A-listers!
