Jason Kennedy

Biography

Jason Kennedy is the Anchor of E! News, where he covers national celebrity news.

Jason grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where his love for television news became apparent at a very young age. He spent countless hours chasing local news trucks and taking taxis to cover breaking stories for a mock-news show he hosted out of his basement. The studio was outfitted with 20 televisions, four cameras, a news desk and a control room. Jason went on to attend the University of Miami, where he received several awards, including the Associated Press Award for Best News Feature in the State of Florida.

Following his graduation in 2004, Jason moved to Los Angeles and landed a job hosting segments for Open Call on the TV Guide Network. Since joining E! in 2005, he has anchored both E! News and the Daily 10, covered the deaths of Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson, and has been and continues to be an integral part of E!’s live awards show coverage. In May 2008, Jason hosted his first Primetime show called Dance Machine on ABC. He was also the voice of American Idol Rewind, as seen on the Fox and TV Guide Networks.

Some of Jason’s recent achievements include being the official Social Correspondent for the 2014 GQ Men of the Year event in LA, co-hosting Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show in Miami alongside Bill and Giuliana Rancic and Michael Yo, and hosting NBC's first-ever digital talk show, Beyond A.D., which accompanied Roma Downey and Mark Burnett's TV series, A.D. - The Bible Continues.

Jason has lent his talents to the TV industry with roles on Drop Dead Diva, as well as the film industry, with his most recent role alongside Kate Bosworth and Hayden Christensen in 90 Minutes in Heaven. Jason has thrived behind the camera as well, taking on the title of Co-Executive Producer (alongside Giuliana Rancic) of Oxygen's docu-series, Rich In Faith.

His countless press appearances and features include: The Today Show, People, HuffPo, LA Times, Elle and Life & Style - to name a few!

Jason currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Lauren Scruggs – the couple’s road to the altar was beautifully documented in their recent wedding special that aired internationally on E!

Despite Jason’s weekly set schedule, he sets aside time to lead a Bible Study. This weekly gathering has expanded tremendously since its birth just a few short years back, and has made quite an impact on the Hollywood community.
