*Former “106 & Park” host Rocsi Diaz has a new gig.
After leaving “Entertainment Tonight” in September, the TV personality has joined HLN as its L.A. based anchor/correspondent for “The Daily Share,” reports Deadline. She’ll cover entertainment, lifestyle, fashion and sports, as well as red carpet coverage of events for HLN.
“The Daily Share” (weekdays, noon-5 p.m. ET) is hosted by Ali Nejad and Yasmin Vossoughian and aggregates social media news and lifestyle content of the day, giving viewers a digest of what people are watching, searching, playing, sharing, shopping and creating.
HLN, the CNN Worldwide network reaching more than 100 million U.S. households, rebranded itself in 2014 as the first all-screens home for social news and lifestyle content. HLN rips its headlines from social media and interacts with consumers.
Diaz left “Entertainment Tonight” this month after a two-year stint as weekend co-host and daily correspondent. “As both Rocsi and ET have grown and evolved over the years, she has elected to pursue hosting opportunities that are available to her at the start of next year,” a rep for the program said last September in a statement to Deadline. According to sources, the evolution involved more emphasis on news content at ET.
Diaz moved to “ET” following seven years at BET’s “106 & Park” and hosted the syndicated radio show “106 & Park Weekend Countdown” along with her “Rocsi On The Radio,” heard in over 20 major national markets.
