Why Is Mary Hart Leaving Entertainment Tonight?


Mary Hart is a fixture on TV. She joined ET a little after it started and was at its helm for nearly 30 years.

Last August she announced her retirement saying, “I only meant to be at ‘ET’ for three years, suddenly it’s almost 30! I’ve reached a point when I clearly realize it’s time for a change.”

“There are many things I want to do in my life and I’d better get on with them. It will certainly be with mixed sentiments that I say ‘goodbye’ at the end of the season, but it will definitely be with a sense of celebration,” she added.

Mary will be passing the baton to Nancy O’Dell. Sounds like at 59, Mary just wanted to see what else is out there for her.
