Emmy® Award-Winning Journalist and Brain Tumor Survivor, Maria Menounos, To Host Susan G. Komen® San Diego’s “Screens, Genes & The Choices We Make” Annual Fundraiser

On March 14th, Susan G. Komen San Diego will bring together experts to share innovations in breast cancer research, treatment and well-being.  Maria Menounos, Emmy® Award-Winning journalist and brain tumor survivor will host this interactive, casual and cutting-edge event. 

Menounos holds the distinct honor of conducting the only interview with the entire Obama family. The interview was touted by ABC News as one of the defining moments leading to Obama’s historic victory. Her groundbreaking conversational style of reporting led her, at the age of 22, to become the youngest person ever to host Entertainment Tonight. Menounos would go on to do the same for the Today Show, Nightly News, Dateline and Access Hollywood. She has also held sit down interviews with every U.S. President since George Bush and has traveled the globe, covering everything from the war in Afghanistan to earthquakes in El Salvador to the AIDS crisis in South Africa. While at Entertainment Tonight, Menounos hosted ET on MTV and ET on VH-1, both of which soared to number one weekend ratings on their respective networks, and recently was the host of E! News where she did the same. In addition to her award-winning journalism career, she is also the CEO and co-founder of one of the largest digital broadcast networks worldwide, AfterBuzz TV. Menounos is also a well-known TV and movie actress, a SiriusXM host and she is also the host of Conversations with Maria Menounos podcast edition available on iTunes.

Menounos has also overcome significant personal challenges. Just months after her mother was diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer, Menounos was also diagnosed with a brain tumor. She endured a difficult operation and recovery, and thankfully the tumor was benign. Maria will share her challenges and experiences with cancer at Komen San Diego’s 4th Annual Screens, Genes & the Choices We Make.
