Rocsi Diaz is set to depart Entertainment Tonight after a two-year stint as weekend co-host and daily correspondent. She is expected to leave the entertainment newsmagazine in January. “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 in a statement to Deadline. “Until then, she will continue to bring her usual brand of Rocsi-style entertainment interviews to ET.”
According to sources, the evolution involves a stronger emphasis on news content at ET; that might not be a great fit for Diaz, who rose to fame as co-host of BET’s hit music show 106 & Park. There is no replacement for Diaz, though ET is bringing in CNN entertainment correspondent Nischelle Turner as a new correspondent next month.
