Billy Bush ‘close to locking down deal’ to join ‘Extra’
Former “Today” host Billy Bush is ready for his comeback.
TV insiders are buzzing that the once-golden boy of entertainment news has been in meetings to join “Extra.”
Bush is “close to locking down a deal,” according to the Blast.
Fox announced that it acquired the entertainment newsmagazine show from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, which will move “Extra” from NBC stations.
Bush hosted NBC’s “Access Hollywood” before joining the “Today” show in 2016.
“Extra” is currently hosted by ’90s teen star Mario Lopez.
A rep for Bush did not respond.
