Daytime debut for Penacoli

Posted: Updated:

Ex-EXTRA correspondent Jerry Penacoli hosted his first Daytime show this morning.

Penacoli joined Cyndi Edwards as co-host replacing Lindsay MacDonald who left to spend more time with her family.

Penacoli is a full-time Tampa Bay resident, and has family in the area.

"I've owned a home in St. Pete since February of last year, and my mom spends a lot of time at my sister's and they live in Valrico. My brother-in law is here in the area. This is our home," he said.

Penacoli is a multiple Emmy award-winner, who served as a correspondent for the entertainment show EXTRA for 13 seasons. He has also been a host for E! Entertainment Television.

"I know the audience is just going to love him," Cyndi Edwards said. "Because he is exactly the way you see him on TV. He's warm, and he's outgoing, and he's friendly and he's sweet."

Penacoli's first episode aired today at 11 am.

"It's going to be good," Penacoli said about his future on Daytime.
