WEEKNIGHTS 7:00 & 11:30
I can't tell you how many times people have asked me, "Jason do you ever get tired of the people you report on?"
How do I say this delicately, YES!
Lately I've had a hard time uttering the name Jenelle Evans. She's the "star" of the MTV hit show Teen Mom 2. Let me be honest, I've only watched about three minutes of the show, but that's all I need.
The series chronicles the lives of teenagers navigating their first year of motherhood. There are even reports suggesting that girls are getting pregnant just to try to get on the show.
My breaking point was a story we aired yesterday where Jenelle got into a huge fight with another girl. People were cheering her on in the background. I was stunned. This girl has been charged with a laundry list of things including breaking and entering and marijuana possession. She clearly needs help and watching someone self-destruct at just 19 years old is disturbing. I hope MTV cans the show and spends their money on getting Jenelle, Amber Portwood and the rest of the "cast" therapy….fat chance.
In 2005, Jason Kennedy joined E! as a news correspondent, handling a variety of stories and events for E! News.
A native of Fort Lauderdale, Kennedy became a permanent fixture in his neighborhood, spending most of his time chasing news trucks and taking cabs to news scenes to mock-report on the local news. His love for hosting began in the fifth grade, after he constructed a studio in his basement, equipped with 20 televisions, four cameras, a news desk and an editing station. Unlike most anchors, Kennedy began his first on-air experience at the age of 15.
While attending the University of Miami, Kennedy received numerous awards, including the coveted Associated Press Award for Best News Feature in the state of Florida.
Kennedy finally made the big move to Los Angeles in 2004, when he anchored segments for Open Call on the TV Guide Channel. His experience and talent has led him to report on everything from President Clinton's visit to Miami to Paris Hilton's visit to a Beverly Hills spa.
