Veteran entertainment journalist Billy Bush joins “Extra” as anchor and managing editor, bringing his top industry relationships, his signature interview style, and his unique point of view to the show's storytelling.

As part of the reimagined format, “Extra” will showcase Billy’s skills as one of the leading journalists in entertainment. Cameras will follow Billy behind the scenes and inside the newsgathering process.

Originating from a brand-new, high-tech studio set in a working news room in Burbank, California, Billy and the “Extra” team will work their deep-rooted contacts to break news, make headlines, and advance the biggest pop culture stories of the day.

Billy will be backed up in Los Angeles by longtime correspondent Renee Bargh, and new correspondent Jennifer Lahmers, fresh off anchoring the morning news for New York’s WNYW Fox 5.

“Extra” will also expand its newsgathering, with bureaus in three entertainment capitals: New York, Las Vegas, and Nashville. Fronting coverage from Times Square, the series welcomes former NFL star and NFL Network Host and CBS Sports commentator Nate Burleson; country singer Jana Kramer will tap into her Nashville relationships to report from Music Row; and we welcome back former “Extra” co-host Charissa Thompson, who will cover all the goings-on in Las Vegas.
