Tracey Edmonds can now add entertainment correspondent to her illustrious resume. The producing powerhouse has been named one of EXTRA’s newest co-hosts.

According to the THR, Edmonds and Charissa Thompson will be joining Mario Lopez this fall as special correspondents on the popular entertainment news series. The two beauties are replacing Maria Menounos, who recently inked a deal with E!  as well as a new partnership with NBCUniversal for a upcoming series titled, Untold with Maria Menounos.

“I am thrilled to join Extra and am so excited about being a part of such a dynamic and progressive entertainment show,” said Edmonds in a statement. ‘I look forward to working with Mario, Charissa, Lisa G and her whole team. Extra already set the bar high, but I look forward to contributing new ideas and exploring new horizons on the show as I enter the next chapter of my career.”

Edmonds has built quite a media empire through her company, Edmonds Entertainment Group and is currently the COO of Our Stories Films.  She has produced such break out hits series as BET’s College Hill  and OWN’s Deion’s Family Playbook,  along with her boo Deion Sanders.

Kudos to Tracey!  RC is looking forward to her new gig which begins September 8.
