Jake Mossop joining ‘ET Canada’ as new entertainment reporter
Entertainment Tonight Canada has announced that as of Wednesday evening, Jake Mossop will be joining the show as an on-air and digital entertainment reporter.
Best-known for his role in 1 Girl, 5 Gays, viewers may also recognize Mossop as a regular ET Canada fashion panel contributor. A respected voice in fashion, health and pop culture, with a fervour for social media, Mossop will be covering the latest entertainment news and events from ET Canada‘s Toronto-based studio.
“We are thrilled that Jake is joining the ET Canada team,” says Sholeh Fabbri, executive producer of ET Canada. “He brings a fresh perspective, a dynamic energy and a megawatt smile that I’m sure our audiences across all platforms will love.”
“Jake joins ET Canada at an exciting time as the show continues to expand its online presence as a dominant digital destination for entertainment news,” says Phil Piazza, VP Global TV Programming, Marketing & Digital Content Acquisitions Shaw Media. “ETCanada.com is constantly evolving, with more up-to-the-moment red carpet coverage, behind-the-scenes exclusives, and extended interviews than ever before.”
Born and raised in the Toronto suburb of Newmarket, Ontario, Mossop’s TV career began in 2010 when he was invited to join the late-night talk show 1 Girl, 5 Gays. A registered nurse specializing in inner-city health, he jumped at the opportunity as a way to reach beyond his regular practice and promote healthy lifestyles to a wider audience.
Mossop appeared as a regular panellist throughout the show’s six seasons. He then went on to join MTV’s The After Show (Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWOWW editions) and Vancouver’s Outlook TV.
“I am excited to be joining Canada’s top entertainment news team,” said Mossop. “I look forward to bringing my unique perspective and passion for fashion, health, and celebrity culture to the stories I cover for ET Canada on air and online.”
Mossop makes his ET Canada debut tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on Global TV.
