TV Guide Signs Fatone for Red Carpet Duties


TV Guide Network enlisted Joey Fatone, host of NBC’s hit The Singing Bee, to co-host its Red Carpet programming through 2008.

Fatone will share hosting duties with TV actress and fashion entrepreneur, Lisa Rinna, who signed an exclusive deal with TV Guide Network in April to become Red Carpet host at the major Hollywood award shows.

The duo, each of whom were contestants on successive seasons of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, will team-up live on the Red Carpet starting in September at the 2007 Emmy Awards.

In addition to the 2007 Emmy Awards, Fatone will co-host TV Guide Network’s Red Carpet award season coverage in 2008, including the Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Grammy Awards and Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.

Fatone recently competed on Dancing with the Stars, in which he and his dance partner placed second. He was also part of *NSYNC, which released a self-titled debut album in 1998 that went diamond, selling over 10 million copies.
