Terrence J (Jenkins) was once a homeless college graduate going-for-broke when he auditioned and was hired to host BET’s “106 & Park,” but recently he completed another item on his ‘wish list’ with his move to “E! News.” 

Jenkins’ will be co-hosting with “E! News” veteran Giuliana Rancic.

“I actually wrote down how and what I wanted to accomplish,” said Terrence J about his career. “I was homeless at 23 when I auditioned for ‘106 & Park.’ I never got what I wanted but… it’s full of accomplishments. Every day is a step towards (what I want)…”

Terrence J is also an actor whose credits are already impressive with co-starring roles in the Steve Harvey film ‘Think Like a Man’, in ‘Burlesque’ and the T.D. Jakes movie ‘Sparkle’.

The North Carolina native says that the “E! News” assignment is the pinnacle of his successes thus far. He credits his academic achievements in preparing him for the worldwide exposure he received via his co-hosting gig at BET on “106 & Park.”

“That family connection, that means so much to me, it fuels me,” he said. “I try to stay humble and not get into trouble. You build…every time you get experiences, you get better.”

The actor/television co-host said he intends to be the best co-host on “E! News” he can be while also having fun.

Episodes will include interviews with comedian/actor Kevin Hart and Chris Brown on his new foundation Symphonic Love.
