JEREMY PARSONS is the host of PEOPLE NOW, a daily live entertainment news show that brings the pages of PEOPLE MAGAZINE to life with celebrity interviews and updates on everything trending in pop culture and entertainment.
Jeremy’s body of work in front of and behind the camera has taken him around the world to host and produce shows and interview top stars – giving viewers engaging, unique and authentic access to the most prominent culture shapers of our time. From one-on-one chats to red carpet premieres, comedy sketches to reality docu-series, Jeremy has racked up an impressive combination of experience and variety.
Jeremy gained momentum on-air at the movie based national cable network, ReelzChannel, as a host and reporter/producer for the daily entertainment news show “Hollywood Dailies” and the network’s weekly in-depth interview based show “Spotlight.” He hosted and co-developed a docu-series pilot for Reelz that explored the lives of extreme movie fans. The network also utilized Jeremy’s on-air talents for a 2 season, 100+ episode stint as co-host of the movie trailer show “The Big Tease” as well as the network’s movie showcase feature “Our Favorite Movies.” In addition, he served as a producer for ReelzChannel’s “Secret’s Out with Leonard Maltin.”
While at Reelz, Jeremy also maintained a two year run as the face of Verizon’s VCast music countdown show “10 to Play,” which put him at the fingertips of over 80 million Verizon mobile customers every day. Along with appearances on “The Rotten Tomatoes Show,” Ryan Seacrest Productions cast Jeremy to helm several prank segments on TLC’s “iKid with Brad Garrett,” and he co-hosted a tailgate tour reality pilot for Shed Media and the Versus network. Jeremy also took the reigns as entertainment anchor, regularly joining the lively team on the KTLA Morning News – LA’s number one television morning show.
His slate of half hour TV specials have taken audiences around the globe to the iconic set of Harry Potter with the ensemble cast in London, to the festive towns surrounding Barcelona, Spain, giving a rare look at Walt Disney’s short film collaboration with famed artist Salvador Dali, to the shores of Rio de Janiero with the cast of the movie Rio, and behind the scenes of top action and super hero movies that dominate the box office worldwide.
Jeremy’s work began on the radio while in college, working on multiple stations in Ohio and a syndicated network where he quickly established a strong presence on-air. He then headed off to Los Angeles where he landed various production positions with Dick Clark Productions, ABC’s “Good Morning America,” and multiple entertainment networks.
On a personal level, Jeremy is a reality television addict and a loud, proud and avid listener of Top 40 pop radio. A native of West Virginia, he loves staying active and being outdoors, so much so that he has cycled the California coast from San Francisco to San Diego, then over to Phoenix — twice. Jeremy recently began blazing a trail as a dad when he fathered the world’s most beautiful daughter. He and his wife are also animal lovers who obsess about their two fat cats. A huge Tom Hanks fan, Jeremy finds inspiration from one of his favorite movies, “Big,” which reminds him of the important things in life – cherish your friends and family, dream big, have faith, and most importantly…be careful what you say to a Zoltar machine at the local carnival…
