Access Hollywood is welcoming a new member to the family – former ESPN host Michelle Beadle.
Beadle will cover red carpet events, including movie premieres and fashion week, plus report on all breaking Hollywood news, alongside the Access Hollywood team, including anchor Billy Bush.
“Michelle Beadle is a perfect fit for Access Hollywood. She is a tremendous broadcaster, smart, clever with a terrific sense of humor,” said Access’ executive producer Rob K. Silverstein. “Michelle’s sensibility will help Access to continue to separate itself from the pack.”
Beadle will also serve as a correspondent for NBC Sports Group’s big-event properties, including this summer’s London Olympic Games, which she will also be covering for Access. Beadle will also have a role in the 2012 NFL Kickoff and Horse Racing’s Triple Crown, as well as other NBC Sports Network programs.
“I am thrilled to join the NBCUniversal family and to have the opportunity to work alongside many of the most talented and accomplished individuals in the business,” Beadle said. “This gig is the perfect blend of the two things I am most passionate about — sports and pop culture. I look forward to getting back to New York City and immersing myself into a myriad of NBCUniversal platforms, while trying to kick ass and have some fun along the way.”
