Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

As ambitious as she was beautiful, host-broadcast journalist-actress Maria Menounos gained notoriety with her work as an entertainment news correspondent and engaging personality on the red carpet. A former Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, she focused on broadcast journalism while enrolled at Emerson College, during which time she began working as a reporter for the educational satellite news program "Channel One News." Upon graduation, Menounos was recruited by "Entertainment Tonight" (syndicated, 1981- ) in 2002, where she remained until moving to "Access Hollywood" (syndicated, 1996- ) in 2005. Occasional forays into acting included a recurring role on "One Tree Hill" (The WB, 2003-05; The CW, 2006- ), as well as appearances in the features "Fantastic Four" (2005) and "Tropic Thunder" (2008). The following year, she became the first reporter to interview the Obama family together as a correspondent on the "Dateline: Presidential Inauguration Special" (NBC, 2009). An audience favorite - particularly among male viewers - Menounos had proven herself to be far more than just another pretty face through the impressive breadth of her interests and professional efforts.
